Criminal Justice

Public safety, human dignity, equal justice

The Challenge

The status quo in our criminal justice system is not working. An effective criminal justice system protects people and preserves public safety, respects human dignity, restores victims, removes barriers to opportunity for people with criminal records, and ensures equal justice for all under the law.

Our society is eager to improve the current criminal justice system, but we need practical solutions that address root causes. We need social entrepreneurs to develop solutions that bring about a society of equal rights with justice for all.
