Popularizing the idea that we can smartly and safely reduce the number of people in our prisons and jails by 50%.
For too long, our criminal justice policies were guided by fear and anger. The result was an explosion in the number of people behind bars and devastating consequences for communities of color.
We work closely with a variety of media outlets to craft solutions-oriented content that can educate and inspire mainstream audiences. Often leading with the voices of those who have been directly impacted, we are furthering a national dialog about the moral, political and financial costs of our criminal justice system.
#BeyondPrisons is a platform to humanize justice reform. We are shining a light on those impacted by the justice system, uplifting their voices, and demonstrating that transformation is possible for formerly incarcerated individuals.
#JusticeReformNOW is a campaign to advance policies that keep people out of prison who don't need to be there; grow our investment in rehabilitation, treatment and education; and address barriers to civic and economic participation for formerly incarcerated people.
We are mobilizing an unlikely alliance of grassroots activists, policy experts, influencers, celebrities, and people directly impacted by incarceration.
It will take a wide range of voices to inform, inspire and move millions of Americans to action. Together, we can keep people out of prison who don’t need to be there, so we can keep families together and communities whole.
