Sobre Nós

JustLeadershipUSA (JLUSA) is dedicated to cutting the US correctional population in #halfby2030. JLUSA empowers people most affected by incarceration to drive policy reform.

Mass incarceration is the most significant domestic threat to the fabric of our democracy. The reason for such high incarceration rates is not serious crimes but misguided policies such as mandatory minimums, three-strikes laws and reductions in the availability of parole and other early release mechanisms. Through targeted advocacy, strengthening leadership and membership support, JustLeadershipUSA believes a decarcerated America is possible.

With input from countless other criminal justice reform stakeholders, advocates and formerly incarcerated people from around the country, JLUSA has identified three areas which strategically comprise our theory of change and primary activities:

Leadership: JLUSA believes that America’s most challenging barrier to expansive, systemic criminal and juvenile justice reform is the absence of clear and consistent leadership by those who have been directly affected by our failed public safety policies. JLUSA invests in and empowers formerly incarcerated men and women through our 12-month cohort-based Leading with Conviction (LwC) advanced leadership training program, and accelerated day-long Emerging Leaders (EL) training program to lead local and national efforts in advocating for criminal justice reform.

Advocacy: JLUSA provides formerly incarcerated leaders and their allies nationwide with the resources and opportunities to engage in direct and collective nonpartisan and non-lobbying education and advocacy efforts for decarceration policy reform at the local, state, and national levels. By supporting, launching, and executing local and national advocacy movements, JLUSA ensures that public safety policies are responsive to the needs of those affected by mass incarceration. Locally, JLUSA’s efforts include our #CLOSErikers Campaign which seeks to draw the support and engagement of key stakeholders, including impacted residents, to close the institution which has committed major human rights violations and other infractions which hinder any ability to make progress on criminal justice reform.

Membership: JLUSA mobilizes Americans to advocate on criminal justice reform issues through the development and nurturing of a national membership network in support of our goal of #halfby2030. In just 16 months since launch, JLUSA has secured thousands of members and anticipates growing this network significantly as the organization increases its staffing capacity and continues to scale.
