The Student Alliance for Prison Reform is launching the first ever prison reform agenda developed to express Millennial values and publicized with Millennial voters in mind.

SAPR SAPR is a nonprofit organization that works to mobilize university students to work in prison education and reform. Our network of students and student organizations catalyze initiatives to bring about change in the US criminal justice system. With over 26 chapters and affiliates at universities around the country, from Harvard to Colorado College, we organize advocacy and awareness campaigns around national prison reform issues, including juvenile justice and solitary confinement. Our chapters are individually governed and work in service, education, and advocacy around the nation to further prison education, raise awareness on campuses, and influence policy.
