The Sentencing Project


Founded in 1986, The Sentencing Project works for a fair and effective U.S. criminal justice system by promoting reforms in sentencing policy, addressing unjust racial disparities and practices, and advocating for alternatives to incarceration. Their work includes the publication of groundbreaking research, aggressive media campaigns, and strategic advocacy for policy reform. This exemplary team of people are responsible for some of the more innovative methods of thinking about the philosophy and purpose of sentencing and many reforms to this aspect of the justice system.
