Founded in 2013, the mission of the Anti-Recidivism Coalition (the Coalition) is to change lives and create safe, healthy communities by providing a support and advocacy network for, and comprised of, formerly incarcerated young men and women. To accomplish this mission, the Coalition advocates for fair policies in the juvenile and criminal justice systems, and provides a supportive network and reentry services to formerly incarcerated individuals. This award enables the Coalition to partner with Imagine Justice, the social impact organization founded by musical artist, actor, and activist Common, to design and launch a public education campaign highlighting the negative impact of jail incarceration on families and communities, racial disparities in jail usage, the cycle of recidivism to which jails contribute, and the broken cash bail system. In addition, the award enables the Coalition and Imagine Justice to work on a local level in two Safety and Justice Challenge sites, Chicago and Los Angeles, to engage community members and formerly incarcerated people in local criminal justice reform efforts. The combined work of the Coalition and Imagine Justice will strengthen both local and national support for reform measures that reduce incarceration while keeping communities safe.
