The Centre for Justice Exchange is a collective of academics, students, and individuals who seek to share and create more inclusive understandings and practices of justice and accountability. People in the system are isolated from the relations, supports, and information needed to increase their quality of life, while violence in its many forms goes unaddressed. Our current criminal model and punitive response segregates people and fails to address root of social violence.

At the Centre for Justice Exchange we seek to advance justices that reflect opportunities to learn, grow, and create and an accountability that connects people, while broadly addressing violence. We achieve this through education, research, and the sharing of resources. This includes 1) raising awareness of the current barriers to justice and struggles of people in the criminal justice system; 2) networking and sharing justice research and resources; and 3) co-creating alternative ideas and practices of justice and accountability.

The Centre for Justice Exchange is committed to ensuring the communities and those with the lived experiences are central to our work. We receive over a hundred letters annually from people involved in the criminal justice system who are trying to improve their life circumstances. As we learn from these exchanges, we develop collaborations and initiatives to make justice more accessible and inclusive.

Thank you for helping us learn, grow, and create. Keep on keep’n on…
