DecARcerate works to end mass incarceration in Arkansas through community education, smart legislation, advocacy, and empowering the leadership of individuals personally affected by the criminal punishment system. We believe in a state where communities are safe and caring, individuals who cause harm are rehabilitated and reintegrated into supportive communities, all people are respected and treated equitably across institutions, and systems of exploitation and oppression are replaced with ones that are just and create healing.
DecARcerate is made up of a small, but dedicated team. Our staff, board, and volunteers are working tirelessly to end systems of exploitation and oppression.
