The National Black Women’s Justice Institute (NBWJI) works to reduce racial and gender disparities across the justice continuum affecting Black women, girls, and their families, by conducting research, providing technical assistance, engaging in public education, promoting civic engagement, and advocating for informed and effective policies.

 

NBWJI works independently and in collaboration with a number of universities and organizations to improve outcomes for women and girls impacted by criminalization and economic marginalization.
