EXPO STL

Expo is an acronym for Ex-Incarcerated People Organizing.  We are an organization composed of formerly incarcerated individuals devoted to prison reform, ending mass incarceration and the collateral consequences of being impacted by the system. Expo STL is a chapter of Expo Wisconsin which was formed in 2014 in Milwaukee. They have 3 official chapters and are in the process of adding more chapters throughout the country.

EXPO here in St. Louis, Mo. is built on the same structure and training that has been successful in Wisconsin. Expo aims to combine lived experiences with the training and knowledge base provided by the Gamelial network to deconstruct the prison industrial complex. Expo’s motto is “You have the right to not remain silent.” Our goal is to humanize individuals that are currently and previously involved in the criminal justice system. Expo also strives to shift the narrative by highlighting what assets to the community justice impacted individuals can be.

We believe that everyone should be given a second opportunity to pursue a happy life and harmony within the society in which we reside.
