Our Strategy

Get Hip with CJRC.

Build Community

We work to support everyday violence prevention in communities of color. We do so by building coalition of POC-led organizations and filling the leadership gap through mainstream advocates who are centering communities of color, confronting violence, and challenging the criminal justice system. 

Created with Sketch.

Seek Justice

We utilize evidence-based research, data, and analytics to drive the conversation around injustices, especially those that disproportionately affect communities of color. We strive to invest in programs that promote a justice that promotes the safety and security of all members of our society, and especially those on the margins.


Fight for Reform

We built a strategic policy framework that includes targeted, community-based intervention programs. We have the tools to reform broken systems that continue to marginalize and tear apart our communities. Our work redefines policy with a focus on dignity for communities of color.
