Vera Institute of Justice

Vision: VIJ envisions a society that respects the dignity of every person and safeguards justice for everyone. VIJ’s mission is to drive change; to urgently build and improve justice systems that ensure fairness, promote safety, and strengthen communities.

Impact: VIJ works with others who share their vision to tackle the most pressing injustices of today—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.
