Justice Reform

The Foundation supports work to create a more equitable and humane justice system. Current funding priorities include multi-pronged approaches to eliminate the use of solitary confinement, including supporting a national campaign that provides resources to state and local coalitions. Creating a more humane system involves changing the culture within a system that is based on a punishment paradigm into one that returns people home as healthy and valued citizens and neighbors. To that end, the Foundation supports work to change the culture of the system and institutions. We look for programs that seek to change the inherent nature and role of the current justice system.
