We reimagine justice through a restorative vision.

Criminal Justice Reform

Our Focus

Immigrant and refugee community members should not be targeted and punished simply because they were born in another country. We advocate for policies that disentangle local and state law enforcement from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). We also push for reforms that diminish the power of the prison-industrial complex, demanding investments in marginalized communities rather than police and the carceral system, challenging police misconduct, and promoting restorative justice as an alternative to punitive approaches in the criminal legal system.

  • We advocate for legislation that ends California's collaboration with ICE and stops double punishment of immigrant communities.
  • We ensure county compliance with the CA Values Act (SB 54) - California’s sanctuary policy that we helped draft and pass.
  • We bring community partners together to mobilize for policy change and help immigrant families stay together.
  • We advocate for clemency for immigrant community members facing deportation due to prior convictions.
