CJRC is a national advocacy coalition that promotes and invests in evidence-based policies and programs to prevent gun violence and uplift criminal justice reforms in urban communities of color.
Working at the nexus of gun violence prevention and criminal justice reform.
CJRC runs three national programs to create opportunities for advocates, build a community of activists, and promote gun violence prevention and criminal justice reform around the country.
The Speakers Bureau is a unique intergenerational training program to help both millennial thought leaders and formerly incarcerated organizers improve their public speaking skills, personally tell their stories, and market their skills and expertise to connect with a wide range of audiences on a state, local and national level.
peacemaker Training Institute
Peacemaker Trainings bring together organizers and allies working within or interested in the gun violence prevention movement, specifically within communities of color. These trainings are meant to shift the narrative of gun violence prevention to center voices of color and create space for collaboration, community, and learning.
