Our mission is to change the way society and the justice system respond to violence and harm. Mass and static incarceration will not be solved unless we address that which we are most afraid to talk about: people who have committed violent crime, and/or those serving life sentences.
We recognize that basic dignity and equal rights for all is the foundation to freedom, justice, and peace in the world. We envision a fair justice system – one guided by the principles of re:storative justice – that empowers directly impacted individuals to share their lived experiences to drive meaningful change from the inside-out. In working together to better understand each other, we believe in healing traumas, finding lasting solutions to crime, and building safer, healthier, and more equitable communities.
