The Safety and Justice Challenge is an initiative of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to reduce mass incarceration by changing the way America thinks about and uses jails. As part of the initiative, a network of competitively selected local jurisdictions are developing and modeling effective ways to reduce the misuse of jail.

In addition to this network of participating cities, counties, and states, partner organizations offer on-the-ground support and expertise, help communicate the importance of jail reform to the public, share knowledge across the Network, manage our research and analytics, and amplify the successes and findings of the Safety and Justice Challenge.

SJC Exchange is an online community for individuals and organizations participating in the Safety and Justice Challenge.
