We empower people impacted by incarceration,   and we use our work on the front lines to   advocate for a more humane criminal justice system.     We call it translational justice.    

Our Impact


Translational Justice =

Direct Service + System Change

For example

In response to the harmful impact of parental incarceration on children and families, we worked with our allies and the S.F. Sheriff’s Department to institute the most comprehensive family services and contact visiting program in the country.
