JustLeadershipUSA joins with 40+ other orgs to relaunch “Vision for Justice” 2024

April 12, 2024

JustLeadershipUSA is proud to join The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, The Leadership Conference Education Fund, Civil Rights Corp, and 40+ other national justice organizations to relaunch “Vision for Justice” — a comprehensive platform that outlines a new paradigm for public safety that respects the dignity and human rights of all people.

Originally launched in 2019, this updated version of “Vision for Justice” includes recommendations that better reflect and incorporate issues that have evolved since the platform’s initial release.

“Consider this: 531 of every 100,000 adults in the United States are behind bars; 2.7 million children have a parent serving time in prison or jail on any given day and more than 5.2 million have had an incarcerated parent at some point during their lives; and the War on Drugs has cost this country trillions of dollars and devastated countless communities. This can and must change. We must promote lasting public safety and justice for all by meeting the needs of all communities.”

The platform includes a supplemental organizing toolkit and companion guide that will assist advocates, grassroots activists, policymakers, business leaders, educators, and people eager to make a difference to help hold our elected leaders accountable and amplify the urgent need for a new paradigm for public safety going into the 2024 election and beyond. These resources are accessible on an interactive website and provide concrete solutions for every stage of the criminal-legal process across local, state, and federal levels.
