About Us


Watch our new video to learn about Grassroots Leadership, our allies, and our work!

At Grassroots Leadership, we believe no one should profit from the imprisonment of human beings. We live in the most incarcerated society in the history of the world. Every day we confront a prison industry that preys on pain because locking people up dehumanizes all of us.
