Prisoner Justice Projects
The SJC believes in prison abolition and the fight to bring about a world beyond prisons and policing. We believe communities can work together to address harm and hold one another accountable through Restorative and Transformative approaches to justice.
Below are some projects we are involved in to connect with, advocate for, and support incarcerated community members.
Prison Pen Pal Project
We are a group of volunteers building friendships through letter writing with community members experiencing incarceration in provincial penitentiaries in NL.
