Partnership for Safety and Justice is Oregon’s leading voice for public safety and criminal justice reform.
This year, we’re celebrating 20 years of impact and influence!
Here’s to many more years of transforming the criminal justice system by bringing together people who are justice involved, crime survivors, and the families and communities of both.
|A public safety and criminal justice system that builds strong families, safe communities, and a just society.|
|Transforming our response to crime through innovative solutions that ensure accountability, equity, and healing.|
We advance local solutions.
We engage with people convicted of crime and crime survivors to advocate for policies and programs that prevent harm, meet regional needs, and reflect our state’s racial and ethnic diversity.
We oppose excessive criminalization and over-incarceration.
We challenge Oregon’s reliance on long prison sentences and its disproportionate impact on communities of color. It’s time for a more balanced and responsible approach that values prevention, healing, and equity.
We advocate to better serve crime survivors.
We are building a movement of healing and safety for people harmed by crime and violence so that all survivors have the resources they need to rebuild their lives.
We are a diverse coalition of people like you,
including those most impacted by crime and violence, community members, victims’ advocates, social justice activists, business owners, criminal justice professionals, lawmakers, and service providers.
“At first I was on the fence about becoming an advocate for reform, but then I realized: If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten, and
I think it’s time for something different.”
