Our Strategies

We work to expose and reduce the harms caused by the commercialization of justice and return resources to affected communities.

Advocacy 
We develop tools that range from course-changing narratives to actionable financial analyses for public education, political engagement, and corporate activism.

Responsible Contracting
We set performance expectations for prison services and use litigation to enforce them, pushing out exploitative actors while improving conditions of confinement. 

Impact Litigation
We pursue complex litigation, focusing on commercial claims against private players, to end abusive practices and return resources to the exploited.

While there is an egregious number of financially exploitative practices to tackle, our current efforts focus on the private outsourcing of ancillary prison services, which has grown into a multi-billion-dollar industry over the past few decades with little oversight. Yet, as we expand our work to cover other financially exploitative practices in bail, probation, incarceration, and parole, we also expect to revisit, adjust, and expand our suite of strategies.
