In order to create long-term social change, we recognize we must challenge and dismantle the harmful systems and institutions that oppress our communities. We believe there should be greater accountability and transparency from government and a clear commitment from our leaders to take decisive actions that will end overcriminalization and mass incarceration. We fight for abolishing systems that cause harm, especially the prison industrial complex.
No decisions about us without us.
CAMP is a community-rooted organizing base aimed at challenging injustice, mass incarceration, and the abuses of power within the criminal legal system. Our base consists of people who are justice-impacted, community organizers, professionals, and volunteers who share our values. Chainless Change engages in movement-building with the goal of creating actionable plans that increase access to resources, opportunities, and protect the basic human rights of those who are justice-involved.
By leveraging community relationships through CAMP, we provide our POWER program participants and their families with access to the knowledge they need to effectively advocate for just outcomes. We advocate for community stakeholders to create lasting change that prioritizes care over cages, housing and healthcare over handcuffs, books over bars, and jobs over jails.
In addition to our campaign work, CAMP houses other initiatives that will improve the lives of those impacted by the criminal legal system.
