SPEAR is a student-run advocacy group at Princeton University that seeks to agitate, advocate, and educate against mass incarceration. To this end, we run various projects, including a letter-writing program with people in solitary confinement, an effort to start a community bail fund, and a private prison divestment campaign. SPEAR also organizes and hosts an annual conference designed to bring together students, youth organizers, activists, policymakers, and academics from different communities and universities to build a movement for systemic change and to form a network of people committed to transforming the current criminal justice system. We encourage all interested students to get involved! Check out our website: or email co-presidents Abigail Gellman '17 (agellman@) or Julie Chen '17 (juliefc@).
When: We meet on Mondays from 8-9pm in the Campus Club Prospect Room.
Where: Meet and serve on campus.
