The Justice Collaborative supplies deep legal and policy expertise to organizations throughout the country to cut through the complexity and confusion of local, state and federal laws and procedures that make up our criminal justice system. Our goal is to transform our deeply flawed criminal system so that it’s grounded in human dignity and restraint.
Recently, we’ve started a project called The Justice Volunteers, a volunteer task force dedicated to researching a variety of key criminal justice issues. The work done by Justice Volunteers is incredibly valuable to TJC’s goal of holding elected officials in the criminal justice system accountable, advocating for reform-minded policies across the country, and researching and amplifying important local issues related to criminal justice reform. You can find additional information in our Blueprint which further details our approach to criminal justice reform.
We are currently in the process of expanding this task force to include law students from around the country. The students will be able to work with legal and policy experts while researching and collecting information that fuels the organization’s work. Almost all of this work is done online and is designed to be as flexible as possible to allow our volunteers to work whenever their schedule permits. The application and additional information about the program can be found here.
