Worth Rises, a Justice Catalyst partner organization, published a comprehensive report on the prison industry entitled “The Prison Industry: How It Started. How It Works. How It Harms.” in early December. Written to inform the prison abolition movement, the groundbreaking report describes 12 sectors of the prison industrial complex and how the privatization of the carceral state and its siphoning of wealth from affected families works to maintain systems of oppression. 

We’re proud to partner with an organization that uncovers the private actors profiting from mass incarceration and works to dismantle the system upholding the carceral state. The report is available here.

A nonprofit advocacy organization, Worth Rises aims to abolish the prison industry and end the exploitation of those affected by it.
