Criminal justice reform is an issue that’s deeply personal to me. I’m both a survivor of crime and someone with a conviction history. From these experiences, I can tell you that our criminal justice system is doing way more harm than good and that it’s past time we have a different approach to community safety.
Partnership for Safety & Justice is a holistic organization that engages both survivors of violence and people convicted of crime. They recognize that people have the potential to heal and to be full members of our community. They understand the importance of treating someone with my background based on who I am today and not the mistakes I made.
It’s inspiring to see the impact that Partnership for Safety & Justice is having in our communities. They’re making sure that we’re reducing mass incarceration, helping create restorative justice programs, and reaching out to victim advocates and survivors of crime to make sure their voices are heard.
