New report: "Bridging the Divide"

Bridging the DivideBridging the DivideA new report, co-written by EJUSA Executive Director Shari Silberstein, was released today called Bridging the Divide: A new paradigm for addressing safety, crime, and victimization.

Two years in the making, this report is the culmination of four groundbreaking convenings that brought together criminal justice reformers and crime victim advocates to imagine a new justice system – one that promotes safety, accountability, justice, healing, and fairness and that meets the needs of the communities most impacted by crime and violence.

Read the report and share it with your friends.

Faith, Encouragement, Action

Once & For AllI used to support the death penalty. I didn’t even have a rational explanation for it. If you’re comfortable in life, you can accept a lot of things uncritically.

I really started to look at it when Cherrell Brown started working at EJUSA and told me about it. Her work made me think, and not just about the death penalty. The whole criminal justice system.

Won’t you join me and make a generous gift today to support Cherrell and EJUSA’s other national outreach? Your gift will be matched as part of the Once and For All Campaign.

Finding common ground

Cherrell presents at GULDWhat role do the survivors of crime play in the discussion around criminal justice reform?

That’s the question that EJUSA sought to answer last week during a workshop entitled “Toward a New Paradigm: Victims’ Advocacy in the Criminal Justice Reform Conversation” at The New School in New York City. The conference – Growing Up Locked Down (GULD) – brought together criminal justice reform advocates and juvenile justice experts in discussions around the over-incarceration of youth.
