The Interfaith Coalition for Justice In our Jails (ICJJ) is a non-profit dedicated to bringing members of diverse faith communities together to achieve transformative change within the
Alameda County justice system.

 

 

 

 

We want to decrease the jail population - especially for those with mental illness and

with housing needs.

Jail conditions must be safe, humane, and supportive of successful reentry.

 

We recognize that communities marginalized by structural racism and economic inequality,

are the same communities most negatively impacted by the justice system.

We strive to reduce incarceration as a punitive approach to social problems while also aiming to improve conditions in the jail.
