Advancing Justice


Advancing Justice is a new NADCP initiative to lead justice system reform. Never before has there been more evidence validating community-based alternatives to incarceration, more effective treatments for substance use and/or mental health disorders, and more social and political will for reform.

Progress is being made but there remains a profound gap between what is known and what is being done.

Advancing Justice was created to fill this gap.

Advancing Justice is led by former Justice For Vets Director Melissa Fitzgerald. To learn more visit
