About the Project

The ART Gallery is a virtual exhibition of a few select pieces from Initiate Justice’s Inside Members. This showcase raises funds Initiate Justice, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, working to end incarceration in California by activating the power of the people most directly affected by incarceration.  Artists were compensated for their contributions.  They will continue to receive a portion of proceeds, and have indicated which projects within Initiate Justice they would like their donations to support.  This project is the care of the Inside Membership Committee.  All committees are open to anyone who would like to contribute their time.  Learn more here.
