Cynthia Chandler is director of Justice Now, an outreach organization seeking to end violence against women and stop their imprisonment. Justice Now believes that prisons and policing are not making communities safe and whole but that, in fact, the current system severely damages the people it imprisons and the communities most affected by it. Justice Now promotes alternatives to policing and prisons and challenges the prison industrial complex in all its forms.
