In October 2011, we were honored to learn that a group of 127 experts identified Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition (CCJRC) as 1 of 21 high-impact nonprofits working in criminal justice in the U.S. on a local/state level. Some of reviews experts had about our impact were:
“They have helped pass major sentencing reform and prison downsizing policies over the past few years”
“They have a unique ability to earn media attention and shape policy reform.”
“CCJRC has had a long history of advocating for sensible criminal justice reform in Colorado. They have a deep understanding of the political arena and have steadily built a reputation within the criminal justice advocacy community, state public safety agencies, and the legislature. This is a very high impact organization organization in Colorado and one that should be studied as a model for other statewide criminal justice advocacy coalitions from around the country.”
