The Marshall Project is a nonpartisan, nonprofit news organization that seeks to create and sustain a sense of national urgency about the U.S. criminal justice system. We achieve this through award-winning journalism, partnerships with other news outlets and public forums. In all of our work we strive to educate and enlarge the audience of people who care about the state of criminal justice.

The Sentencing Project is a leader in changing the way Americans think about crime and punishment.

The Sentencing Project works for a fair and effective U.S. criminal justice system by producing groundbreaking research to promote reforms in sentencing policy, address unjust racial disparities and practices, and to advocate for alternatives to incarceration.

As a result of The Sentencing Project’s 34 years of research, publications, and advocacy, many people know that this country is the world’s leader in incarceration; that racial disparities pervade the criminal justice system; that over six million Americans can’t vote because of felony convictions; and that thousands of women and children have lost food stamps and cash assistance as the result of convictions for drug offenses.

Mission: To drive change. To urgently build and improve justice systems that ensure fairness, promote safety, and strengthen communities.

The Vera Institute of Justice is an independent nonprofit national research and policy organization in the United States. We work with others who share our vision to tackle the most pressing injustices of our day—from the causes and consequences of mass incarceration, racial disparities, and the loss of public trust in law enforcement, to the unmet needs of the vulnerable, the marginalized, and those harmed by crime and violence.

While Vera continues to operate across a broad portfolio, we are pursuing three core priorities vital for us to focus on right now and in the immediate future:

  • Closing Mass Incarceration.
  • Promoting Safety, Trust, and Justice in a Diverse America.
  • Transforming the Conditions of Confinement. ​​
