The Center for Health and Justice Transformation at Lifespan (CHJT) is a non-partisan organization whose mission is to advance health equity in the criminal justice system.
A more fair and representative criminal justice system that prioritizes public health and safety requires input and action from the community, decision-makers, non-profits and businesses, families, and any and all impacted by the justice system. When we work, we engage as any voices as possible for true transformation.
Mass incarceration disproportionately targets racial minorities. We believe we can’t seek healthy outcomes and transform our criminal justice system without centering our work on the devastation our current system has and continues to levy on persons and communities of color.
We serve on behalf of the millions incarcerated, including their families and loved ones and the community-at-large. As such, we stand behind and when necessary beside those most closely impacted by the justice system.
We are mission-driven people. We will always ask the difficult questions and reveal truths wherever they may lead, in our pursuit of a healthy and equitable criminal justice system.
