About Us

Louisiana Prison Education Coalition is a group of people that are committed to increasing the educational opportunities for the 45,000 people currently prison in Louisiana and all those directly impacted by the prison system. Through our collective power, we work to thoughtfully develop and implement programming to ensure that individuals can achieve their educational goals from early literacy through higher education. In addition to providing education in prison, we also seek to educate the public about prison in order build support for prison education and understanding for the impact of this system on our communities.
