We seek a criminal justice system that respects human dignity, ensures equal justice under the law, and keeps communities safe. These goals are not mutually exclusive. Each is necessary to achieve the other.
We will be more effective if people who bring different perspectives but share a commitment to justice, unite in these efforts. Together, we can rise above those who seek to pit people against one another and achieve reforms that build on our country’s strengths, even as we address its weaknesses. We reject the idea that if you are “pro-community” you must be “anti-cop.” That is a false choice that serves to further entrench the status quo.
