Description:

Education Just Project (EJP) is a vibrant community of students, educators, and others who are committed to expanding access to higher education within American prisons as a matter of justice. Our mission is to demonstrate the positive impacts of college-in-prison programs. In pursuit of that mission, EJP organizes educational programming at Danville Correctional Center through the University of Illinois. EJP members also produce critical scholarship about prison education and related topics.

In the community, EJP conducts outreach to family members of incarcerated people and produces a statewide reentry guide. We also conduct regular, public events on the University of Illinois campus. We seek to increase critical awareness of issues related to incarceration and criminal justice in Illinois and beyond.

We are committed to building an open, safe, gentle, inclusive learning environment within EJP. We believe that a rigorous and critical education program requires the cultivation of such an environment and that self-reflection is an important part of creating and sustaining such an environment.
