Creating a world where justice is not reliant on the criminal legal system.

Supporting thriving communities where needs are met and neighbors have agency to build joy.

The Justice 20/20 Network is an inclusive community for policy advocates, grassroots organizers, community members, those directly impacted by the criminal legal system, and all new learners hoping to make an impact.

The Justice 20/20 Network is a vehicle for those seeking to change the Illinois criminal legal system to collaborate, strategize, and coalesce power.

The Justice 20/20 Network will address the structural harms of the criminal legal system and support the creation of community conditions that lead to “No Entry” into the system, including disrupting the cycle of criminalization and incarceration. Through four working groups focused on Supporting Safe & Thriving Communities, Policing, Pre-Trial & the Courts, and Incarceration, we hope to assemble a diverse group of stakeholders to strategize across issue areas where people typically operate in silos to holistically address the criminal legal system in Illinois.
