Making Criminal Justice Reform Research Accessible to All
Bridging the gap between academia and on-the-ground criminal justice reform
A team of reform-minded scholars
The Academy for Justice recognizes that criminal justice reform is complicated and controversial, yet a vital component to a more just society. We believe that knowledge is the most important tool for addressing these issues, and we’re here to make it simpler and easier by providing easily accessible information for all who are interested in creating real change in the American criminal justice system.
