We Build Power in Marginalized Black and Brown Communities

Common Justice’s policy and organizing work seeks to build power in marginalized Black and Brown communities that have been disproportionately impacted by violence. We advocate for and center the needs of survivors of violence, as well as those who have been adversely impacted by violence, including interpersonal, community and state violence. Ultimately, the Advocacy Team seeks to end mass incarceration and help Black and Brown communities find paths to healing that alleviates some of the harm caused by the carceral system and systemic racism.
