Alabama Students Against Prisons is a coalition of students from over twenty schools across the state, fighting for fairer justice and working toward an Alabama less dependent on prisons. Including organizers from student-led campus groups, they are working to achieve their mission of empowering students and strengthening their collective voice. They oppose Gov. Ivey’s impending prison plan, as well as the policies which ensure our state remains ensnared in the vicious cycle of racialized mass incarceration.

ASAP has a network of over 200 student activists, over 700 followers on social media, a letter writing campaign with 150 participants and counting, and more students participating from colleges and universities throughout the nation.
