Our Purpose

  • Educate citizens and lawmakers about constitutional, human rights, and criminal crises created by overly punitive laws which are not based on facts or science;
  • Be involved in legislative work concerning criminal justice reform;
  • Promote evidence-based reform of our existing laws;
  • Review all new penalties and crimes to ensure that such laws are appropriate for the offense;
  • Promote reform of public registries, ex post facto laws, and other constitutional violations;
  • Promote family reunification and resources for all former offenders, including therapy, housing, and employment; and
  • Encourage those who have offended to remain offense free and complete all treatment and supervision obligations.
