In 1787, a small group of Pennsylvanians came together to take a stand for human rights and just criminal laws. They called themselves the Pennsylvania Prison Society. Each member pledged 44 shillings a year, the equivalent of $300 today, and dedicated their time and commitment to the cause.
230 years later, the Society has grown to several hundred members and our commitment stays the same. Your contributions ensure that we have the support we need to provide justice and compassion to all. Since we are a non-profit organization, your gift is tax-deductible.
Join the movement to end mass incarceration. Any level of support brings us closer to accomplishing our mission. A contribution of $40 or more, makes you a member of the Pennsylvania Prison Society.
As a member you receive:
A subscription to Graterfriends, a newsletter that provides news and a venue for prisoners' voices;
Periodic news and information about criminal justice and correctional issues from the Prison Society;
An invitation to attend the Annual Meeting held in May, which features relevant keynote speakers, and a reception.
