CJI's mission is to end Mass Criminalization and Mass Incarceration in the United States by building and strengthening the infrastructure of the grassroots criminal justice movement.
We pursue those goals by funding grassroots, community-led organizations working for the interests of those most negatively affected by the inequities of the criminal justice system—people of color, immigrants, LGBTQI folks, women, and the formerly incarcerated, among others.
CJI believes this movement should be led by those most impacted by the injustices of the current system, working in alliances across race, class, faith, gender, gender identity, sexuality, immigration status, and age.
CJI gave $400K away to 30 organizations in 2017. This year we hope to increase that to $500K to 35-40 grassroots groups across the country.
Give now to support the movement in this critical moment!
TOGETHER, WE CAN ACHIEVE JUSTICE FOR ALL OUR COMMUNITIES!
