Advocacy Groups

  • The Center for Young Women's Development (CYWD)
    The Center for Young Women's Development is one of the first non-profits in the United States run and led entirely by young women. From the beginning, they have organized young women who were the most marginalized in San Francisco—those in the street economies and the juvenile justice system—to design and deliver peer-to-peer education and support.
  • The National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice
    The National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice aims at providing a centralized national focal point that pulls together and links the various activities and research that are currently underway, maximizing the awareness and usefulness of new products and learnings, and using the best available knowledge to guide practice and policy.
  • The National Immigration Law Center (NILC)
    The National Immigration Law Center protects and promotes the rights and opportunities of low-income immigrants and their family members. NILC staff specialize in immigration law and the employment and public benefits rights of immigrants.
  • The Rebecca Project for Human Rights (RPHR)
    RPHR is a national legal and policy organization that advocates for public policy reform, justice and dignity for vulnerable families. The Rebecca Project strives to reform child welfare, criminal justice, and substance abuse policies that impact the lives of vulnerable families.
  • The Sentencing Project
    The Sentencing Project works for the reform of unfair and ineffective criminal justice policies and promotes alternatives to incarceration. Visit our issue area pages to learn more about the impact and unintended consequences of criminal justice policies.
