About Us

The National Black Women’s Justice Institute (NBWJI) is an organization focused on the reduction of racial and gender disparities in the justice systems affecting Black women, girls, and their families. NBWJI  conducts research, provides technical assistance, engages in public education, promotes civic engagement, and advocates for informed and effective policies. NBWJI operates under the fiscal sponsorship of the National Council on Crime and Delinquency. NBWJI works independently and in collaboration with a number of domestic universities, organizations, and consultants to conduct its work on behalf of Black women and girls in the U.S. who are impacted by criminalization and the criminal justice system directly and indirectly because of their race and gender. NBWJI also works in collaboration with organizations that elevate equity discourses among all women and girls.
