Founded in 2014, the California Criminal Justice Funders Group (CCJFG) is an established network of funders and donors that invest in a wide range of systems change. As an active learning community, CCJFG regularly hosts in-person and virtual educational events, member meetings, prison visits, and more. The CCJFG is guided by coordinator Adrienne Skye Roberts, and an active Steering Committee.
CCJFG engages funders from their current location and perspective and supports them to transform learning into collective action; develop principles that align with the movements to end policing, criminalization, imprisonment and the disinvestment of communities in California; build meaningful relationships with impacted communities; and mobilize and redistribute resources.
Values & Commitment
CCJFG’s Steering Committee recently engaged in a process to identify values and commitments to guide our work. We invite CCJFG members to review the following values, and the commitments they represent, and join us in embodying and striving towards these values from whatever current location and perspective you may hold. Our key values and commitments are: 1) Anti-Oppression & Abolition 2) Centering Directly-Impacted People 3) Learning with Humility 4) Collaboration, Engagement & Action.
