OPPRC has been fighting for a safer, smaller, and more humane jail for over a decade. We use organizing, education, and advocacy to fight for an Orleans Parish Prison that incarcerates few and values the lives and safety of people who are held in jail. We move this work forward through a variety of strategies. Below are our current campaigns.
OPPRC has been fighting to downsize the jail and oppose any plans to expand the size of the jail. Click to find out more
