At Vera, we work to drive change, urgently building and improving justice systems that ensure fairness, promote safety, and strengthen communities.
We work with others who share our vision to tackle the most pressing injustices of our day – from the causes and consequences of mass incarceration, racial disparities, and the loss of public trust in law enforcement, to the unmet needs of the vulnerable, the marginalized, and those harmed by crime and violence. And we work for substantially fewer people to be held in jail; for a justice system fully prepared and able to deliver access, safety, and fairness to the diverse communities that make up America; and for envisioning and enacting a system that prioritizes rehabilitation and socialization over retribution.
