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
We challenge Oregon’s overreliance on prisons and jails. To address extreme racial disparities in sentencing and policing, we work with coalition partners in the tricounty area and statewide to reduce mass incarceration and mass supervision. Our efforts have resulted in the closure of two prisons, which redirected millions of dollars toward healing, treatment, and culturally-specific services for crime victims and survivors. Additionally, we’ve expanded earned discharge programs, allowing 5,000 more Oregonians to earn up to a 50% reduction in supervision time upon meeting their goals, while also implementing measures to eliminate unnecessary police stops for minor infractions, like broken taillights, to enhance the safety of Black and brown drivers in our communities.
“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 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.
