Our Work

FREEAMERICA works to end the era of mass incarceration in the United States by amplifying the voices of those impacted by the criminal justice system. Leveraging the convening power of FREEAMERICA founder John Legend, we aim to change the national conversation about our country’s misguided policies that have led to the epidemic of mass incarceration. FREEAMERICA focuses on three areas:


We use storytelling to educate the public on the real-world impact of incarceration.


We work behind the scenes bringing together organizations, elected officials, and other stakeholders to think boldly and pursue reform.


We develop unprecedented solutions and support initiatives to create catalytic change in the criminal justice field.
