CROSS SECTOR APPROACH

Focused on change.

While many initiatives are now underway to reform our criminal justice system, we cannot hope to reverse course without a cross-sector approach that recognizes the relationship between systemic racism, mass incarceration and inadequate community health care systems. We cannot hope to reverse the chronic health issues--including the current opioid epidemic--that tax the nation’s spirit and coffers without heeding the voices of communities whom our criminal justice and health policies have jointly and systematically harmed.
