Face to Face Initiative
The Face to Face initiative challenges all elected officials to participate in a public activity through which they can interact with people who have first hand experience with the criminal justice system.
See how policymakers have taken action to meet face to face with formerly or currently incarcerated people, corrections officers, victims of crime, and others.
