Last Prisoner Project Launches Reentry Partnerships Program to Empower Cannabis Prisoners as They Return to Society
CANNANNEW REPORT

Here’s what LPP are saying Cannabis criminal justice reform nonprofit Last Prisoner Project (LPP) utilizes a three-pronged approach of release, record clearing, and reentry to secure full freedom for the communities we serve. LPP’s reentry resources are focused on ensuring that our constituents have the tools and support they need to successfully rebuild their lives as well as create pathways to employment within the legal cannabis industry. “We can’t just open the prison gates to opportunity for those who are directly impacted,” said Last Prisoner Project’s Senior Impact Strategist Michael Deegan-McCree. “We also need to give those who are impacted the tools to walk through those gates.” To date, LPP’s Impact & Re-entry Team has distributed approximately $750,000 through our Micro-Grant initiative. These grants provide assistance for housing, education, court fees and other services that help cannabis prisoners rebuild their lives upon release. You can learn more about the impact the LPP team has created to date here. Today, LPP is launching the Reentry Partnerships Program which includes our new Ready to Hire, Computers for Constituents, and Premier Community Engagement Partnerships Initiatives.  You can learn more about LPP’s Reentry Partnerships Program and the recently launched initiatives below.
