Justice Initiatives

The criminal legal system’s primary tool for safety has been incarceration – a system that disproportionately impacts Black and Brown people, perpetuates violence, and causes reverberating harm to all communities.

Justice Initiatives focus on strategies to reduce incarceration and increase safety in all communities – including the ones behind the correctional walls – because of both the magnitude of people impacted and the collective trauma of the status quo.

*It is important to note that these groups overlap – many people under correctional control and working in corrections are also survivors of crime

We are all affected by the trauma within jails and prisons

Therefore, we take a three-pronged approach to empowering people with lived experience to help increase our collective safety

Community Investment

Investing in the people and communities most impacted by incarceration, both in their own healing as well as their hyperlocal initiatives that help mitigate the harm caused by incarceration.
