About Us

OPPRC is a diverse, grassroots coalition of individuals and organizations committed to decarcerating New Orleans, improving conditions of confinement in the jail, and promoting healthy alternatives to incarceration. Since our founding in 2004, we have worked to reduce the number of people incarcerated in New Orleans from more than 6,300 people before Hurricane Katrina in 2005 (more than 5x the national average) to fewer than 800 people today. Our work has led to the most dramatic jail population reduction per capita in the United States. Despite these successes, we know the progress we may have made is still not enough, and we welcome you to apply and join our team.
