Justice LA Panel

Justice LA is a Los Angeles-based coalition of grassroots organizations, people directly impacted by incarceration, and community advocates committed to transformative justice. It seeks to shrink the footprint of incarceration by halting jail expansion and redirecting county budget dollars towards community-based systems of care. Since launching in 2017, they have successfully stopped LA County’s $3.5 billion jail expansion plan and lead the development of the county’s Alternatives to Incarceration Working Group report.  Leaders in Justice LA will share how they develop winning campaigns in pursuit of transformative justice.
