Our grantee partners are committed to justice reinvestment, which is reallocating government funding from prisons to tangible investments in communities hardest hit by poverty, violence and incarceration.
The fund is supporting work to reform or repeal excessive prison sentences and incarceration laws.
The Fund is supporting work to increase opportunities for formerly incarcerated people and eliminating the unnecessary barriers they face to being part of their communities when they return home.
We invest in artists so that they can continue to show the human impact of mass incarceration and tell the stories of the mothers, fathers, spouses, friends and students who are caught behind bars.
Art Is Transformative
Art powerfully exposes the pain, injustice and racial bias in our criminal justice system, gives voice to people erased from this conversation and creates the compassion and empathy necessary to drive social change.
