Californians for Safety and Justice
Californians for Safety and Justice, a project of the Tides Center, is a nonprofit working with Californians from all walks of life to replace prison and justice system waste with common sense solutions that create safe neighborhoods and save public dollars. Through policy advocacy, public education, partnerships and support for local best practices, we promote effective criminal justice strategies to stop the cycle of crime and build healthy communities.
In addition to our statewide network of nearly 6,000 crime victims, Californians for Safety and Justice is bringing together business and community leaders, policymakers, law enforcement, health professionals, educators and crime-prevention experts to replace costly, old ways of doing business with new justice priorities that improve public safety without draining resources from our schools, hospitals and other community needs.
We are generously supported by a group of philanthropic foundations dedicated to improving California’s criminal justice system: the Ford Foundation, Fund for Nonviolence, Open Society Foundations, Public Welfare Foundation, Rosenberg Foundation, and The California Endowment.
