At Families for Justice as Healing (FJAH) we organize formerly incarcerated women to join the movement toward creating alternatives to mass incarceration. Our membership advocates for community wellness, with women as a focus, and rejects the current U.S. drug policies that prioritize criminalization and incarceration. We believe that if we are serious about eradicating drug related illness, crime and violence we must commit to the evidence based solutions that address poverty, addiction and trauma.
Our staff is small and in need of funding. We are driven by the fight for basic human rights denied to the women and children we stand for. Our mission is huge but we know for sure that it’s ordinary people that create extraordinary change.
