STAFF AND BOARD OF DIRECTORS



Restore Justice was founded by a dedicated group of activists and advocates who were tired of watching important but thorny criminal justice reform efforts get sidelined.   We are volunteer-driven and our board is drawn from affected communities, academic leaders, and local and national heavyweights from the reform movement.
