All of Us or None (AOUON) is a national grassroots community organizing effort working to reverse the discriminatory policies and practices affecting formerly incarcerated individuals.   A New Way of Life is the fiscal agent of the Los Angeles and Long Beach chapters, which together form All of Us or None – Southern California (AOUON-SC).

AOUON-SC’s values are grounded in its “Self-Determination Pledge”:

  • We demand the right to speak in our own voices.
  • We treat each other with respect and will not allow differences to divide us.
  • We accept responsibility for any acts that may have caused harm to our families, communities and ourselves.
  • We fight all forms of discrimination.
  • We help build the economic stability of formerly incarcerated people.
  • We claim and take care of our own children and families.
  • We support community struggles to stop using prisons as the answer to social problems.
  • We play an active role in making our communities safe for everyone.


AOUON-SC holds meetings twice per month, one each in Los Angeles and Long Beach.  YOUR VOICE IS NEEDED!
