Help redefine justice in America.
Make decarceration a reality.
Today, 1.7 million of America’s children have one parent in prison.

JustLeadershipUSA was founded on the principle that systemic change can happen with a strong base of active members from across America. Current policies such as the “war on drugs,” “three strikes,” and “truth-in-sentencing” are wasteful and ineffective. Recent trends of responding to America’s at-risk youth with tough sanctions, adult-type punishments and incarceration squanders the potential and human capital of entire generations. Both progressives and conservatives agree that our nation can do better. By becoming a member of JustLeadershipUSA, you will join thousands of Americans in taking action to eliminate these archaic laws, rebuild the families and communities they have torn apart and make America safer and stronger.
Our ability to achieve the goal of #halfby2030 lies in the strength of our membership. Our members are organizing campaigns, attending events and taking action! Being a member means being an agent for change.
