The Jesuit Conference Office of Justice and Ecology is the advocacy voice of the Society of Jesus in Canada and the United States. Current advocacy priorities include: care for creation, criminal justice reform, economic justice, and just migration policies.
Our criminal justice reform advocacy is rooted in the experiences of those served by Jesuit ministries like Homeboy Industries, the Jesuit Restorative Justice Initiative, Thrive for Life, Jesuit college university initiatives, Jesuit prison chaplaincy programs, and many others.
Current policy priorities include: bail reform, sentencing reform, reentry funding, educational grants for incarcerated individuals, and ending the death penalty. Sign up on our website for periodic policy updates and opportunities to engage your elected officials on criminal justice reform.
