We partnered with Forward TogetherResearch Action Design, and 20 community based organizations in 13 states on a national community-driven research project documenting the experiences and resilience of families who have experienced incarceration.

Together, we produced original research, and we will develop campaigns and policy solutions for safe and thriving communities, and strengthen the national movement to end mass criminalization and mass incarceration. The report, Who Pays? The True Cost of Incarceration on Families, was released nationally in September 2015.

Who Pays? highlights public safety solutions that focus on shifting resources away from prisons and punishment and reinvesting in the communities most damaged by incarceration.
