Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Orleans Parish Prison Reform Coalition is to use education and organizing to decrease incarceration, increase oversight, and improve the conditions in Orleans Parish Prison, emphasizing a community centered approach to justice, in order to foster a whole and liberated New Orleans.

Our vision is an Orleans Parish justice system that is guided by a community coalition of incarcerated persons, community organizations, legal workers, advocates, and elected officials, who work together to utilize holistic approaches and alternatives to incarceration in order to foster healthy communities.

Safer, smaller, more humane.
