Sobre Nós

Justice Now works with people in women’s prisons and local communities to build a world without prisons. We believe that prisons and policing are not making our communities safe and whole but that, instead, the current system harms both the people it imprisons and their communities. From using intersectional frameworks, such as gender and racial justice, we understand that all of the violence we face is interconnected. 

Efforts to criminalize violence against women, transphobic violence, and other forms of interpersonal violence have not ended those harms. Instead, criminalization has only extended the reach of the prison industrial complex. We are interested not only in challenging what we see happening in prisons, but also in building a different world – a world where all of us have affordable housing, food, healthcare, economic opportunity, and freedom from both individual and state violence. This vision includes expanding the conversation about ways to respond when people harm each other – ways that no longer rely on violence and control.
