SPEAR members educate, advocate, and agitate against our carceral system through legislative campaigns, campus activism, direct service, and community education. Our projects address many of the consequences of the carceral state, including the disenfranchisement of formerly incarcerated people, juvenile justice, prison conditions and oversight, pervasive post-incarceration barriers to re-entry, solitary confinement, and more. SPEAR meets every Monday from 8 to 9 p.m. in Campus Club, where you can start working on any of these projects!
