Defenders connect clients to community-based services and supports from the beginning stages of the criminal justice process.
Participatory defense hubs utilize trained community volunteers to provide insight, perspective, and support to those being charged and their families as they navigate the justice system.
With our community partners, we have developed a blueprint for a pre-trial system that protects due process, and prioritizes community-based supports over cash bail to create a fair, cost-effective system that improves the safety of our communities.
Restorative Response Program
The Restorative Response Program draws on the tenets of Restorative Justice and emphasizes community re-engagement over criminal punishment
