Educate: We aim to change the attitudes of society and its perception towards the reality of prison life by raising awareness and exploring alternatives. We host talks with criminal justice professionals, academics and activists working to change the criminal justice system. We have recently started a student-led blog series where people can write, read and learn about specific elements of the prison industrial complex in the UK and internationally. Our newly published website also contains a hand-picked podcast bank to listen to.
Campaign: We lobby the university, the council and the government to give those in prison a fair chance and foster rehabilitative and social welfare programmes as well as stop the expansion of the prison estate and reduce the number of people isolated from society in prisons.
Support: We encourage members to join volunteering programmes and fundraise for charities that tackle all aspects of prison life, whether that’s within the community, within prison itself or post-prison.
