In February 2020, we published a national research report on the pathways through which pretrial incarceration and money bail impact health with considerations for how to prioritize community health instead of punishment. We partnered with Faith in Florida for the first county-specific research brief to inform local policy decisions.

Learn about the project


We’re fighting for a society where all people are healthy and free.

Where we wield our collective resources to help, never to punish or hurt. Where all people get the care and assistance they need to repair any harm they have caused, heal historical or ongoing pain, and grow in community together. Where there is no need for prisons, jails, detention centers, or policing. Where all people can thrive.

Through our research and advocacy with community partners, we’re taking action to advance racial justice, public safety, and health equity.
