Missouri Prison Reform is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that advocates for Missouri’s incarcerated and their families by elevating their voices, advocating for their needs, and exposing harmful policies that undermine our overall goal of harm reduction, healing, and rehabilitation.


Missouri Prison Reform was founded in 2019 by Lori Curry after she began to learn about prison conditions in Missouri. Lori wanted to amplify the voices of those impacted by Missouri’s carceral system and advocate for better prison conditions. Missouri Prison Reform began being contacted by more and more people living inside prisons as well as their families and even prison staff who wanted to tell their story or seek help.
