Impact on Public Policies

Its objective is to transform our country's prisons into places of opportunity and not of punishment. To achieve this, a strategic axis consists of promoting actions to positively transform public policies regarding social reintegration, in order to contribute to improving the capabilities of the prison system of our country, mainly in terms of work and training for it.

Advocacy on Public Policies seeks to generate a structural impact in our prisons at the national level and, thereby, contribute to positive systemic change in the Mexican prison system.
