Working Group Toward Equal Justice

What we do:

We educate our members about the Criminal Justice System, the different intersectional systems that underpin it, and opportunities for transformational reform. We provide resources and collective opportunities for our members to take actions in their lives, communities, businesses, investments, and philanthropy.

  • We host salons for NEXUS members in our cities, at allied conferences/events, and at NEXUS Summits on innovative solutions to the Criminal Justice System.
  • We provide baseline frameworks, materials and context around the Criminal Justice System as well as regular news and information about the system on an ongoing basis through social media for our members to understand these issues fully and become ambassadors to others about the need for transformational reform.
  • We provide resources for our members on actionable areas for them to implement as well as peer support to that implementation.
  • We help amplify the voices of formerly incarcerated led solutions as well as our members as they take action and encourage others to do the same.
