Common Justice develops and advances solutions to violence that transform the lives of those harmed and foster racial equity without relying on incarceration. It operates the first alternative-to-incarceration and victim-service program in the United States focused on young New Yorkers aged 16-26 charged in adult court with violent felonies. The organization employs its innovative restorative justice model to mediate between victims and offenders, thereby successfully addressing the incident and impact on both sides, while avoiding incarceration. Common Justice also has a strong advocacy presence and seeks to shift the public dialogue towards effective alternatives to incarceration. This grant provides general operating support for Common Justice and its critical work.
