WHAT DO YOU DO?03/25/2021
Simple question, still challenging to answer after all these years. Not because we don’t know what we do – our mission is to advance pretrial justice in America and we believe our partnerships with communities across the country do just that. But what does that look like? To us it looks like reforming justice systems to be more ‘just’ – it means safer communities, reduced racial and ethnic disparities, and a less costly and more fair system. But when people ask “what do you do?”, they really want to know “how do you do it?”. That question is harder to answer because the way we achieve our mission has changed over time.
