Partnership for Safety & Justice transforms Oregon’s response to crime through innovative solutions that ensure accountability, equity and healing.
Bottom Line for Portland
Partnership for Safety & Justice has trained hundreds of community members across Oregon to be effective justice reform advocates. Together, we’ve prevented the opening of a second women’s prison, added $1 million to victim services, and advanced landmark reforms to reduce Oregon’s incarceration rate by 15 percent over 10 years.
“I never imagined that sharing my story with lawmakers would help pass a bill to keep young people out of adult jails. I’m so grateful to PSJ for the chance to be a part of something so powerful.” —Jasmine, PSJ volunteer and formerly incarcerated youth
