The Decarceration Project is a North Carolina nonprofit dedicated to mitigating the inhumane and inequitable effects of mass incarceration. Our efforts include racial equity projects to alleviate the systemic racism and implicit bias that affects Black and Brown justice-involved people so unfairly, strategic litigation to tackle issues of excessive sentencing, efforts around issues of jury inclusivity, and partnering with like-minded organizations so we may make a bigger impact together.
