Partnership for Safety & Justice
Partnership for Safety & Justice is transforming society’s response to crime through innovative solutions that ensure accountability, equity, and healing.
Bottom Line for Portland
Over the last few years, we worked with coalition partners to limit unnecessary police stops in Portland and across Oregon, and we prevented or closed four state prisons, saving over half a billion dollars in spending on punishment and incarceration. Instead, our work has invested $300 million in healing and second chances, including local drug recovery and treatment, crime victims’ healing, community safety programs, and resources that promote racial equity.
“Partnership for Safety & Justice helped me turn the overwhelming grief of my son’s incarceration into active and focused energy aiming at changing Oregon’s laws for the better.”

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Partnership for Safety & Justice is led by the people most harmed and least helped by our criminal justice system. We are survivors of violence, people convicted of crime, and the families of both. Together, we advocate for reforms that advance equity and healing for Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, women, and other communities disproportionately impacted by violence and mass incarceration.
