Students for Prison and Education Reform

Students for Prison and Education Reform ( SPEAR) is a student-run advocacy group at Princeton University that seeks to educate about and advocate against mass incarceration. To this end, we run various projects, including a letter-writing program with people in solitary confinement, development of a reentry guide for formerly incarcerated individuals in New Jersey, and a private prison divestment campaign. SPEAR also organizes 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 us!
