OUR VISION

We envision a criminal justice system that recognizes the humanity of the 2.2 million people convicted of both violent and nonviolent crimes currently behind bars in America and moves toward compassion and treatment rather than punishment and incarceration. 

With empathy, understanding, and love we can build the political will needed to rectify the damage caused by the incarceration industry on individuals, families and our society.
