We believe currently and formerly incarcerated people should be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness.

We believe communities are stronger when individual people are safe, healthy, and whole.

We believe that people are redeemable, regardless of their crime, age, conviction status, or background.

We know that formerly incarcerated people have real dreams for their lives and we believe in empowering them to realize those dreams.

We are dedicated to reforming the criminal and juvenile justice systems so that they are equitable for all people.

We hold that those directly impacted by the justice system should be the ones to transform it.

We contend that system-impacted people should have the chance to lead and hold positions of power.
