IFPS - International Foundation for a Prisonless Society
- CAN YOU HELP?
The International Foundation for a Prisonless Society was established in 1991 by Ruth and Ray Morris, for the following purposes:
- To support and sustain the International Conferences for Penal Abolition
To make it possible for more people with limited incomes, consumers of the system, and third world country persons to attend ICOPA (International Conferences on Penal Abolition)
If possible beyond that, to fund projects which build a climate for healing, transformative alternatives in other ways.
|WHY A FOUNDATION FOR A PRISONLESS SOCIETY
by Ruth Morris, founder. April 1997
(Editor's note: The late Ruth Morris was a founding member of ICOPA; who's unceasing contribution of energy over eighteen years sustained a strong vision for a prisonless society and enabled ICOPA to survive and, with your help, to thrive.)
The Fund is structured much like a trust or endowment that generates interest income for ICOPA support each year. In order to build the conferences through financial support, the principal must grow.
