Criminal Justice

There’s no denying our criminal justice system is in crisis. It lacks consistent logic, often deferring to a false-choice narrative that encourages “tough” or “soft” punishment for criminogenic behavior. Punishment is one solution. But so is reform. We work with companies who strive to reduce the footprint of the system as a whole—so that ground-up community response can become a tool for restorative and transformative justice.

Entrepreneurs we’re working with:

Jacob Sills and Elijah Gwynn

Jacob Sills and Elijah Gwynn wanted to disrupt the mass incarceration model by providing a cost-effective communications platform that helps justice-involved people avoid technical violations of their probation or parole. They founded Uptrust to help people navigate and successfully exit the criminal justice system.
