Criminal Justice Focus Issues

We’re helping partners prove that ‘tough’ vs ‘soft’ on crime is a false choice — and that ‘smart on crime’ is the better path.


There are many things wrong with the criminal justice system: too many people are being sent to prison, trust is eroding between communities and police, and society is paying a terrible price in both wasted dollars and ruined lives. Stand Together is empowering partners to show how to fix a broken criminal justice system, one that decreases prison populations, improves public safety, and offers second chances to those who deserve them.
