Focus Area: Racial and Economic Justice

The Advancement Project is a next generation, multi-racial civil rights organization. Rooted in the great human rights struggles for equality and justice, The Advancement Project exists to fulfill America's promise of a caring, inclusive and just democracy and use innovative tools and strategies to strengthen social movements and achieve high impact policy change.

NCF will support the Free and Safe Campaign, which will enable frontline communities to lead efforts to reform the criminal justice system. The campaign will provide alternative models of community led efforts focused on guaranteeing safety for all while advancing policies and practices that restore political voice to formerly incarcerated people.
