Initiate Justice is excited to announce the Institute of Impacted Leaders – a 12-week organizing training program designed for people directly impacted by mass incarceration – launching in LA in April 2019!

Participants will learn the basics of community organizing, how to change statewide laws, and how to advocate for themselves and their loved ones in prison. Practical activities will include an advocacy day at the California State Capitol and in-district advocacy visits. They will help develop campaigns to win freedom and safety for all.

All materials and travel will be paid for, and graduates will receive a $500 stipend upon completion. Graduates of the Institute will also take the skills they learned and go into state prisons to train our Inside Organizers and become Initiate Justice Members who can help lead our work moving forward.

If you live in Los Angeles, are directly impacted by incarceration, and are interested in participating, please fill out this Interest Form by Tuesday, March 19:
