At the Vera Institute of Justice, we envision a society that respects the dignity of every person and safeguards justice for everyone. We strive to be agents of change, to help build and improve justice systems that ensure fairness, promote safety, and strengthen communities.
We work with others who share our vision to tackle the most pressing injustices of our day: from the causes and consequences of mass incarceration, racial disparities, and the loss of public trust in law enforcement, to the unmet needs of the vulnerable, the marginalized, and those harmed by crime and violence.
We study the problems that impede human dignity and justice and pilot solutions that are at once transformative and achievable. We engage diverse communities in informed public debate and help policymakers and practitioners harness the power of evidence to drive effective policy and practice.
After more than a half-century working on the frontlines of justice, we remain committed to sharing our experience and expertise with leaders in government and civil society to inspire and guide change.
We are thrilled to have a limited number of entries available for the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon, with a minimum fundraising pledge of $2,500. For more information or to apply, please contact email@example.com.
