Last Prisoner Project

GTI remembers one of the first individuals convicted and incarcerated for possession of marijuana in October of 1937. People of color are disproportionately incarcerated for cannabis possession. This is one of the issues that the Last Prisoners project is working to change through nationwide expungement initiatives.

We are honoring the legacy of reformers who fought for equal rights within the cannabis space, blazing the trail for future generations. We recognize there is much work ahead to ensure equity and empowerment for communities negatively impacted by war on drugs.
