1. Embrace healing and accountability

Our system of justice should be community-driven, grounded in dignity and restoration.

Policing and prisons do not keep us safe. 

But we know what does create safe communities: Helping people heal from harm. Creating accountability through transformative forms of justice. Using proven solutions like restorative practices and community-based re-entry programs. 

To become safer, we need to teach students mediation and conflict resolution skills. We need community members who are committed to caring for one another. And we need skilled unarmed emergency response teams to help find solutions and keep everyone safe in emergencies.
