Through our cross-institutional collaboration, we are learning strategies and tactics for disrupting cycles of mass incarceration.
We seek to increase educational opportunities inside Alaska prisons, including access to higher education and more.
Community wellness projects are focused on how to maintain connection to incarcerated people and build opportunities for reentry.
We advocate for legislative changes to institutional and state policies that keep families and generations locked up.

During the 2018-2019 Academic Year, thanks to the UA Faculty Initiative Fund, individuals and organizations are helping shape the direction of a community learning network inside and outside Alaska’s prisons, jails, halfway houses, and electronic monitoring. The next think tank is in Juneau, Alaska on April 12, 13, and 14. Participants will visit inside Lemon Creek Correctional Facility and engage using the Alaska Native Dialogues on Racial Equity toolkit. Thank you to the amazing group who worked hard in November in Fairbanks–see you in Juneau!
