Get Local.

CJRC has established advocates around the country who are working daily to change policy and shift the conversation around gun violence prevention and criminal justice. Tap into our Speakers Bureau to support them in their work. Dont see someone in your locality? Contact us for resources or to request an expert or training in your locality.
