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.

Lawmakers should review every prison rule Help to pack a House subcommittee meeting and vote on Oct. 26`

The Department of Corrections is one of two state agencies that can make up its own operating rules without approval by lawmakers. We hope that situation changes soon. A House subcommittee meets Oct. 26 to debate and vote on HB 192, a bill we wrote that would force Corrections to get all of its administrative rules approved by lawmakers. The session starts at 10 a.m. in Room 306 of the Legislative Office Building, across the street from the State House. We need people to come and testify. Or simply wear one of our YES on HB 192 stickers to show you support the bill.

Is de-listing sex offenders even possible? Lawsuit claims it is

Maybe we should call it a war between sex offender advocates?

Strange lawsuit filed in a local federal court: A Texas-based service that claims to help sexual offenders get off the state registry that limits where they can live and work is suing a Boynton Beach nonprofit that wants to loosen registry rules.
