Our Mission

Delco Coalition for Prison Reform (DelcoCPR) formed at the end of 2017 to organize and fight for local prison reform in Delaware County, PA. We are an informal coalition made up of individuals and representatives from many social justice groups across the County. We aim to follow the leadership and guidance of people formerly incarcerated and to build power and relationships among our members. We are always looking to connect with additional groups who want to work towards prison reform, racial justice and ending mass incarceration.

Our Goal

We are currently strategizing and organizing to deprivatize George W. Hill Correctional Facility, the only private prison in Pennsylvania. We believe that no company should profit from the incarceration of human beings, and taxpayer dollars should not fund such profits.


Prisons do not disappear social problems, they disappear human beings.
Homelessness, unemployment, drug addiction, mental illness, and illiteracy are only a
few of the problems that disappear from public view when the human beings
contending with them are relegated to cages.”
— Angela Davis

We hold monthly organizing meetings on the third Thursday of the month. We hope you will join us in the fight for prison reform here in Delaware County. We value the life experiences and expertise of all our members, and believe we are stronger together and capable of creating a more just County.
