Our Work

We envision a criminal justice system that centers equity; it is less punitive and enhances long-term public safety; decriminalizes addiction, mental illness, and poverty; prepares individuals and communities for re-entry, and seeks to mitigate the collateral consequences of conviction and incarceration.

We utilize a public health framework that centers equity in planning and decision-making to deepen understanding of how the criminal justice system works from pre-arrest through adjudication, incarceration, and reentry and its impacts on families and communities.
