About Students Against Mass Incarceration (SAMI
SAMI was founded in February 2011 at Howard University. The mission of the organization is to raise awareness about the prison industrial complex, political prisoners, and recidivism. We feel the aforementioned are the fundamental issues of our generation and can only be addressed through radical and militant Black activism linked to previous social movements but revised for a 21st century context.
The vision of SAMI is to help build a movement for the complete abolition of all prisons and freedom for all people imprisoned for their political beliefs and actions.
