We have built an industry and economy dependent on human caging and control that capitalizes on crime and prevents justice
We work to expose the harms caused by the commercialization of justice and equip change agents with the tools to challenge its exploitation of vulnerable communities
Data & Analysis
Using our financial expertise and business acumen, we conduct research, collect data, and perform innovative analyses aimed at unmasking the harms caused by the prison industrial complex
Understanding the mobilizing power of knowledge, we transform our analyses into accessible and compelling content designed to increase awareness and shift discourse around the commercialization of justice
We equip consumers, investors, public agents, elected officials, celebrities, litigators, advocates, and the public with the tools needed to challenge those who profit from our nation's carceral crisis
Call for Artists
In Fall/Winter 2018, the Corrections Accountability Project and the Urban Justice Center will host an exhibition featuring the works of incarcerated artists. The exhibition will center on the harmful impact that commercializing our criminal legal system, and more specifically, our prisons and jails, has had on incarcerated individuals and their communities.
We invite incarcerated artists to submit visual works of all types for consideration. We will also accept some short poetry for hanging. All submitted pieces should respond to the theme: Capitalizing on “Justice”.
