Policy

NBWJI develops innovative policy solutions advocating for system reforms that advance the safety of Black women and girls in communities and keeps them out of places of confinement. At the core, our policy recommendations urge policymakers and our society at large to recognize our humanity and to enact legislation and commit resources that redress the systemic harms and obstacles that perpetuate the overcriminalization and punishment of Black women and girls.
