We believe that people closest to problems are often closest to the solutions. We are driven by the conviction that we are strongest when communities impacted by systems of harm work together towards solutions that benefit us all.
Our campaigns aim to change policies and practices that reduce the scope of the incarceration and deportation machine, and we aim to redefine the narrative of safety in ways that do not involve arrest or deportation. We do this all by building power in our communities impacted by the carceral and immigration systems.
