Make a difference. Help incarcerated writers take the power of journalism into their own hands.

Information about the prison system is limited, and policy makers and voters are shaping the lives of incarcerated people without their input. Prison Journalism Project is bringing transparency to the world of mass incarceration from the inside and training incarcerated writers to be journalists, so they can participate in the dialogue about criminal justice reform.

Prison Journalism Project, Inc., is a fiscally sponsored project of Players Philanthropy Fund, a Maryland charitable trust recognized by IRS as a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (Federal Tax ID: 27-6601178).
