About Us

Our mission. Citizens for Criminal Justice Reform works for a just, humane, and restorative judicial and correctional system by means of research, public education, legislative advocacy, coalition building, community organizing, and litigation. We support rational, cost-effective programs and policies that reduce crime, lower recidivism, and make our society safer.

Our vision. CCJR seeks a system of justice that protects the community while promoting the rehabilitation of offenders and the well-being of inmate families.

Our goals

  • Build, empower, and mobilize an active statewide coalition.
  • Debunk common myths and stereotypes about prison and offenders.
  • Reform the criminal justice process to make it more restorative and less adversarial.
  • Promote alternatives to incarceration which are less costly and more effective than prison, such as fines, counseling, community service, and restitution.
  • Advocate for programs that maintain relationships between inmates and their loves ones.
  • Work to reintegrate offenders back into their families and communities.
  • Address addiction as a healthcare issue, not as a criminal offense, and redirect resources to prevention and treatment.
  • Oppose mandatory minimum sentences and dangerous overcrowding in our jails and prisons.
  • Serve as a networking resource for prisoners and their families.
 
“The Granite State has long needed a voice like CCJR to challenge the myths behind decades of draconian state policies on crime.” — Chris Dornin, a former correctional counselor, retired State House reporter, and the founder of Citizens for Criminal Justice Reform.
