Policy analysis

Social Justice

Socio-economic factors increase likelihood of exposure to the justice system. Addressing the social and systemic issues underlying these factors can reduce crime rates and improve public safety.

CJCJ engages in research regarding socio-economic and collateral issues that influence criminal justice involvement, including poverty, education, mental health, familial stability, and immigration. Relationships with advocacy groups across a broader range of policy areas allow CJCJ to provide more meaningful criminal and juvenile justice policy recommendations.
