Please meet The Last Prisoner Project. This organization focuses on three key criminal justice reform initiatives related to cannabis crimes: prisoner release, record clearing through clemency and expungement, and reentry programs.
Currently, the core social justice focus is to release incarcerated cannabis prisoners, but data shows that most released prisoners fail to reintegrate into society without the proper resources in place, thus ending up back in the “system”. Re-entry programs work to greatly reduce recidivism. A criminal record can also be a significant barrier to employment, housing, financial assistance, and more, so we also work to provide record relief.
The current system isn’t working. Last Prisoner Project works to release individuals still incarcerated for victimless cannabis offenses, provides record relief, helps those released from prison rebuild their lives through vocational training programs and building pathways to employment.
Additionally, LPP works on a Federal and state by state basis to advocate for social justice measures for cannabis offenders as well as conducting research and analysis on current legislative and regulatory policies.
Collectively these programs help cannabis prisoners become “fully free.”
