Without empathy, we cannot achieve meaningful policy changes in criminal justice reform that keep our communities safe, our families whole, and our economy strong. There are thousands of people who have stories to tell. By delivering a set of powerful, emotional experiences to lawmakers and fellow Americans.

We aim to: ● Build empathy in our governors, state legislators, and other policymakers to act on criminal justice reform; ● Humanize through personal interaction with impacted persons of the criminal justice system and show legislators that this is about the lives of the impacted people, their spouses, their children, their parents, and their friends, crime survivors, and their communities.
