We stand at the margins because that’s the only way they get erased.
The world will accuse you of wasting your time but in this place which you say is a waste there will be heard again the voice of mirth and gladness – the voices of those who sing .
Make those voices heard.
You go to the margins not to make a difference but so that the folks on the margins may make you different.Father Gregory Boyle, homeboy industries
We believe that the best solutions to address crime, incarceration, and reentry rates are found in the community. Incarceration isn’t the most effective or efficient way to address undesirable behavior. Community is.
We are working to bring together a coalition of community partners, stakeholders, and citizens to brainstorm ways to prevent crime, reduce victimization, and increase public safety.
This includes you. You can help make our neighborhoods safer, reduce incarceration and spending on prisons, and strengthen our communities.
