Criminal Justice Policy Collaborative
Rhode Island may be small, but its advocacy landscape is broad and diverse, with diverging goals and interests. We need a more coordinated, long-term vision for community-driven criminal justice reform. The Center is currently working with local partners to research and write a report that investigates the policy successes and failures that have shaped the criminal justice system in Rhode Island over the last 20 years.
We hope to use this report as a foundation to convene a criminal justice policy collaborative that brings together service providers, advocacy groups, and grassroots organizers to develop joint priorities for the road ahead and advocate together for criminal justice transformation.
