Justice Reform

Rethink Public Safety Initiative

Rethink Public Safety Initiative is an initiative to promote responsible, restorative, and redemptive approaches to justice reform in schools and communities throughout the Inland Valley region.

HELP RETHINK PUBLIC SAFETY BY:

  • Sharing your voice and stories of restoration and redemption
  • Making your voice heard with policy-makers
  • Becoming an informed and engaged voter

DISTRICT ATTORNEYS, LAW ENFORCEMENT, & POLICYMAKERS CAN:

  • Prevent the unfair targeting of innocent Black and Latino residents through the gang database
  • Divert people charged with relatively minor crimes, like young people, into education, job development ¬†or gang intervention programs in lieu of juvenile camps
  • Keep undocumented immigrant families together by following the law and exercising discretion more fairly.
  • Sentence mentally ill and drug addicted persons to rehabilitation and prevention programs
  • Ensure equal protection and fair treatment of all residents under the law regardless of race, sexual orientation, and gender
  • Prioritize resources for schools and education over prison and incarceration
