The Last Prisoner Project focuses on three key criminal justice reform initiatives: clemency, expungement, and reentry. A core focus of the project is to release incarcerated individuals. Data shows, however, that released prisoners are destined to fail without the proper resources in place. Reentry can be incredibly difficult, and two thirds of released prisoners will be arrested again within three years. Additionally, a criminal record can be a significant barrier to employment, housing, financial assistance, and more.
