Capitol Innovation Lab
The goal of the Capitol Innovation Lab is to half the incarceration rate in Washington D.C. by 2021. Utilizing the U process, The Capitol Justice Lab seeks to design a systemic solution to mass incarceration in Washington D.C. The U process brings together a multi-sector coalition that works to assess the current reality of the system, reflect on observations learned, and co-create prototyped solutions that are tested in community. The three phases of the U process are called Co-Sensing, Co-Presencing, and Co-Realizing. Using the U process we will disrupt the current system in which black and brown people are targeted to feed the prison industrial complex. We seek to put a new system in place to reduce the pipeline that feeds prisons; replacing it with a pipeline that feeds opportunity.
