THE PEOPLE. THE POLICY. THE PODIUM.

The Buried Alive Project works to raise awareness and help eliminate life without parole sentences for federal drug offenses through transformative legislation and litigation. We use statistics and stories to educate the public and amplify the voices of those directly impacted. The human element is rarely addressed but necessary to drive change needed to reform the criminal justice system. By engaging people across the country, this project will harness America’s collective interest, passion, and direct experience of this issue into concrete change.
