Join Us!

There are many ways to join Critical Resistance in building an international movement to abolish the prison industrial complex:

ORGANIZE WITH A LOCAL CHAPTER

There are many ways to get involved in local organizing. Contact your local chapter (Los Angeles, New York, Oakland, Portland), or the national office to find out about volunteering or internships.  Becoming a member of Critical Resistance is the best way to keep this movement alive, sustaining our organizing to stop prison and jail construction, mobilize communities most impacted by the prison industrial complex, and find alternatives to punishment and repression that truly make our communities stable and secure.

If there is not a chapter near you, contact us to learn more about ways to support CR’s work from where you are.
