About The Justice Collaborative

The Justice Collaborative is a team of legal experts, researchers, journalists, and media strategists supplying deep legal, policy, and communications expertise to people and organizations working to advance a common goal of ending the dehumanization that has criminalized extreme vulnerability and created an incarceration crisis, and building in its place an America with dignity and freedom for all of us, starting with those who are the most vulnerable.

The policies driving this crisis are built upon a maze of local, state, and federal laws and procedures. We work to cut through the complexity and confusion, working to shrink the criminal legal system and create a more free, more stable, more safe America. Our work empowers, educates, and supports a community of leaders, problem-solvers, and allies at all levels, both outside the system advocating for change and inside those centers of power that determine the fate of both individuals and large swaths of people daily.

The Justice Collaborative (TJC) is a fiscally sponsored project of Tides Advocacy, a 501(c)(4) organization. TJC’s sister project, The Justice Collaborative Institute (TJCI), is a fiscally sponsored project of Tides Center, a 501(c)(3) organization.
