Recent years have seen a growing number of reform-minded prosecutors elected to office who are redefining justice in the 21st Century. These inspiring leaders are creating a more transparent, accountable and equitable justice system. They are rethinking and reducing the reach of the justice system and, in its place, embracing prevention and alternatives to incarceration.
FJP supports this important work by creating a community where best practices can be shared and where innovation and bold action that promotes safer and healthier communities is celebrated.
These inspiring leaders are leaving behind the era of tough on crime, and promoting a new vision for our justice system — a vision grounded in compassion, equity and fiscal responsibility.
These are 21st Century prosecutors. This is the new normal.
