CCJFG Member Meeting Series Session 3: Funding Alternatives to the Prison Industrial Complex

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

In our final member meeting of this series, we will create space for dialogue where members can reflect on what we need to start, stop, and continue building in order to get closer to the vision of Prison Industrial Complex (P.I.C.) abolition. We will invite our members to share their hopes for incorporating alternatives to the P.I.C. into their funding portfolios and brainstorm how to support one another in doing so. We will be joined by Nicole Lee, Executive Director of Urban Peace Movement to help hold and guide our conversation.
