CCCJFG Member Meeting Series: Funding Alternatives to the Prison Industrial Complex

Series Description

In this three-part series, California Criminal Justice Funders Group (CCJFG) funder-members will come together to discuss and identify funding strategies that support alternatives to the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC), including investing in community-led models that address lasting alternatives to punishment and imprisonment. We will learn about concrete funding strategies, hear from movement leaders, highlight CCJFG members’ work, and share practical strategies for supporting work that reimagines different models of community safety and justice.

What do we mean by community-led models? The following are examples and not an exhaustive list:

  • Healing Justice
  • Community based alternatives to 911
  • Community based responses to violence (Transformative Justice)
  • Violence interrupters
  • Credible messengers
  • Restorative Justice
  • Restore Circles

Session 1 Description 

Our initial meeting will provide a snapshot of our members’ current practices related to funding alternatives to the PIC. Members will share current strategies, barriers, and questions. We will collaborate on upcoming meeting structures and discuss how we want to explore this topic.
