How We Approach Reform

We think differently about justice reform, both the challenges and the opportunities.

That means we seek insight and inspiration in unexpected places and bring new voices, partners, and resources to the table to solve overlapping problems that encompass more than legal systems and the harms they can cause.

Because safety and justice are a society’s collective responsibility, not the work of government alone, we develop, nurture, and invest in community-held models and encourage government to share decision-making power and resources with communities. We also operate from the understanding that the struggle for justice takes place in a context of historic, systemic, and pervasive racism.

In all our work, we put people first, especially those who’ve experienced or are at risk of injustice and harm, for whom change matters most. This includes collaborating with people who can draw on this life experience.
