Who We Are

Initiate Justice is a grassroots organization based in California. We engage people directly impacted by incarceration to write, pass, and implement California state ballot initiatives focused on divestment from punitive systems and investment in people, communities, and restorative means of reducing harm.

Our Strategy

Inititate Justice has  an inside-outside strategy where we prioritize organizing people directly impacted by incarceration, inside and outside prison walls. Most of our organizing takes place in prison visiting rooms, in front of county jails, and inside prisons themselves. We also pursue social media organizing strategies that target online groups of people with incarcerated loved ones, so that they can disseminate Initiate Justice information to their loved ones inside directly.
