With 40 years of experience helping restore men and women behind bars, Prison Fellowship advocates for federal and state criminal justice reforms that transform those responsible for crime, validate victims, and encourage communities to play a role in creating a safe, redemptive, and just society.
In 2015 North Dakota's governmental leaders proposed a plan entitled the Justice Reinvestment Initiative (JRI). This initiative would investigate ways to reform the state’s criminal justice system that would save state money as well as provide recommendations for legislative reform that further public safety. This initiative brought to life the Incarceration Issues Committee, which would study the state's criminal justice system and conduct a comprehensive analysis of criminal justice trends. Legislation related to both the JRI and the committee is likely to be included in the 2017 legislative session.
