Since the 1980s, the US has been the leader in mass incarceration making up approximately 25% of the world’s prison population though its population is only 4-5% of the world. Harsh long sentences from our criminal justice system have kept more than 2 million bodies inside the prisons costing taxpayers more than $80 billion per year. Yet 83% of formerly incarcerated people (FIP), or Returning Citizens, return to prisons within 9 years, most of them suffering from PTSD from before incarceration, whose symptoms are often made worse by life inside prison.
Our mission is to realize our oneness and relieve suffering through contemplative social action.
