Students Against Incarceration (SAI)

The mission of Students Against Incarceration (SAI) is to create an environment where people interested in fighting against issues in the criminal justice system can be in community, educate themselves and others, and take action against the prison-industrial complex using an abolitionist framework. SAI believes that the United States criminal justice system is oppressive and corrupt, that incarceration is a tool of oppression, racism, and social control, and that those in criminalized communities and the incarcerated/formerly incarcerated population need to be supported.
