Fund the Prisoner-Led Movement for Abolition Now

Raised by 17 people in 14 months
Our organization operates inside the prisons of Louisiana, the state with the highest incarceration rate in the entire world and home to some of the most notorious prisons in the U.S. including David Wade Correctional Center and Angola Prison, which takes its name from the slave plantation which pre-dated it on the very same land. Through 100% prisoner-directed efforts, we recruit, educate, and organize incarcerated people to fight for a new world - a just world - a world without prisons.

Our objectives are to end prison slavery, to gain full recognition of prisoners' inalienable human rights, and to ultimately abolish the entire Prison-Industrial Complex. We seek to divest money and resources away from prisons, police, mass surveillance, and militarism in order to reinvest those resources into communities that have been systematically plundered and enslaved by the forces of American colonialism, racism, and capitalism. We move closer to this goal every day by increasing the organizing power of those leading the charge behind bars.

Decarcerate Louisiana was directly involved in the planning and execution of the 2018 Nationwide Prison Strike. Prior and leading up to 2018, DL facilitated multiple work stoppages and other protests inside Angola Prison. As a result, Louisiana prison officials have cracked down ruthlessly on many of our leaders. Nevertheless, we continue to expand our reach, readying ourselves to continue the fight in the face of ongoing repression.
Your contribution today to Decarcerate Louisiana will go toward 100% prisoner-led organizing, study materials for prisoners’ political education, rotating deposits to prisoner commissary accounts to build solidarity and recruit new members, legislative advocacy for prison abolition and reparations, and communication between prisoners and outside supporters.

A year ago one of the co-founders of Decarcerate LA was buried in the most repressive prison in the state in the hope that this would stop the movement. Let's prove them wrong. Ron Brooks' birthday is May 14. Please donate whatever you can afford in Ron's name.
