JustLeadershipUSA is dedicated to cutting the US prison population in half by 2030 while reducing crime. JLUSA empowers people most affected by incarceration to drive policy reform.
Mass incarceration is the most significant domestic threat to the fabric of our democracy. The reason for such high incarceration rates is not serious crimes but misguided policies such as mandatory minimums, three-strikes laws and reductions in the availability of parole and other early release mechanisms. Through targeted advocacy, strengthening leadership and membership support, JustLeadershipUSA believes a decarcerated America is possible.

Take Action The US government has no comprehensive record of the number of people killed by law enforcement. The Counted is a project by the Guardian – and you – working to count the number of people killed by police and other law enforcement agencies in the United States throughout 2015, to monitor their demographics and to tell the stories of how they died.
The #BlackLivesMatter movement continues to drive a national conversation about police accountability and racial justice in the U.S. Families of those impacted by racial profiling and police misconduct have turned to Change.org as a platform to tell their stories to hundreds of thousands of people and demand action on issues like policing reforms, accountability, and justice.
We're constantly striving to get on-board with more organizations with similar mission and beliefs as Liberated People. We have recently been in conversation with The Door, City Year and many other independent initiatives.
If you're a charity, or know about some charity that aligns with our mission, or are working independently to strive for social justice in any capacity, please contact us to find opportunities to collaborate.
