The Michelson 20MM Smart Justice Initiative (SJI) leverages higher education as a catalytic force for transforming the lives of justice-involved individuals, and reforming the justice system itself. We work to transform the communities impacted by our country’s punitive legal system to forge brighter, more prosperous futures through education. We do this by leveraging funding, leading advocacy and research efforts, and advancing policy across systems.
