Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law – is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve our systems of democracy and justice. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. The Center’s work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from ending mass incarceration to preserving Constitutional protection in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting-edge communications hub, we start with rigorous research. We craft innovative policies. And we fight for them — in Congress and the states, the courts, and in the court of public opinion, New York, NY and Washington, DC.

The Council of State Governments Justice Center – is a national nonprofit organization that serves policymakers at the local, state, and federal levels from all branches of government. Staff provides practical, nonpartisan advice and evidence-based, consensus-driven strategies to increase public safety and strengthen communities. The Justice Center evolved from the Council of State Governments’ Eastern Regional Conference justice program to a national center in 2006, and serves all states to promote effective data-driven practices — particularly in areas in which the criminal justice system intersects with other disciplines, such as public health — to provide practical solutions to public safety and cross-systems problems. The Justice Center builds on a solid foundation of work related to reentry, responses to people with mental illnesses who are involved with the criminal justice system, and justice reinvestment — a data-driven approach to reduce corrections spending and reinvest savings in strategies that can decrease crime and strengthen neighborhoods, Lexington, KY.
