Impact Justice is a growing organization and focused on building the internal infrastructure we need to support the incredible work we do externally. IJ launched in 2015 and now has a staff of 85. We anticipate more growth in the future and we’re looking to expand our team. It’s the people at IJ who make everything we accomplish possible – and we’re looking to hire folks who are experts at Getting It Done! 

Who We Are 

Impact Justice dares to dream of a humane and restorative system of justice in the United States. Through innovation, research, policy, and advocacy, we are forging a new path to a justice system that is fair to all of us. In addition to our core programs around the enforcement of the Prison Rape Elimination Act, Restorative Justice, and the Research and Action Center, we are continually adding more to our portfolio of Innovation programs. Overall, we all work to reduce the number of individuals (adults and youth) entangled in the criminal justice system, to improve conditions and outcomes for those who are currently incarcerated, and to provide opportunities to those who are rejoining communities. We employ a national team of advocates, researchers, monitors, practitioners, and experts united by this vision. We work closely with communities of color, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, questioning, gender nonconforming, and transgender communities, the formerly incarcerated, and we are continually looking for opportunities to bring those with lived experience in those communities into our teams. A majority of individuals on our current executive team identify as BIPOC and/or LGBTQ. We’re committed to living our values and to creating the kinds of equitable and inclusive team environments internally that we fight to help create in our broader communities.

California Justice Leaders (CJL)

California Justice Leaders is a first-of-its-kind, AmeriCorps program that began in 2019. CJL is designed to engage formerly incarcerated & system impacted young adults who’ve successfully transitioned back into their communities after having had contact with the justice system. Members receive training and professional development to serve as re-entry navigators to youth and young adults who are currently in or have recently been released from California’s Division of Juvenile Justice and/or other county-based juvenile facilities. 

Members also build awareness of California’s Honorable Discharge petition, which has the potential to open opportunities for those who have been involved in California’s juvenile justice system. Members will also work to increase utilization of the Honorable Discharge petition process and guide youth and young adults on a successful re-entry pathway. CJL AmeriCorps members also receive significant leadership and professional development training.
