Since launching in 2015, JPN has trained over 60 fellows who each bring a unique voice to the conversations happening nationally about criminal justice reform. Our cohorts have had rich racial and gender diversity and included individuals impacted by the criminal justice system. We are broadening the field of criminal justice to include perspectives from the health, child welfare, immigration reform, business and legal fields.
