Reimagining Justice Inc. advocates for creating healing centered solutions to community-based violence. Gun violence has had a disproportionate harmful impact on young men and women of color. Solutions that have addressed violence have mostly centered around deterrent and reactionary practices that include aggressive policing, gang task forces and enhanced sentencing. These solutions have led to mass incarceration and the disruption of the economic and holistic growth of black and brown communities. The mission of Reimagining Justice Inc. has been to highlight the importance of addressing violence by using evidence-based models such as Hospital based violence intervention programs, crisis intervention, public health models and transformative justice models. The organization also emphasizes the importance of investing in resources that address the social determinants to violence such as poverty, housing insecurity, food insecurity, high rates of unemployment, structural racism and mental health issues. Our agency has advocated on the importance of understanding the long- lasting effects of childhood trauma and structural trauma on communities of color. The overall mission since the incorporation of Reimagining Justice Inc. has been to advocate to reimagine a system that incorporates culturally responsive, evidence based and trauma informed solutions that adequately support communities that are most impacted by violence. Our focus has been to engage stakeholders and community members on understanding the importance of investing in approaches that support community based public safety solutions so that we can focus on prevention and intervention.

True healing begins when we acknowledge the interconnectedness of our individual and collective journeys, and embrace the transformative power of compassion, community, and justice.”
