Mission

Organizations within the Virginia Prison Justice Network commit to find common ground by working together to build a statewide movement to end mass incarceration.   Although groups may focus on different issues (i.e. re-entry, school to prison pipeline, human rights for prisoners, etc.), we all demand  more justice in the courts, comprehensive legislative change, and a push for more alternatives to detention.  To have a real impact and be truly effective, we are rooted, not just in this purpose, but also in the understanding that building capacity is a process of sharing knowledge, skills, and resources.  Together, we can  build a movement for change.
