This Project has brought together a team that transcends departmental, institutional, disciplinary and social boundaries to address health and justice inequities experienced by underserved populations as they intersect with the criminal justice system (CJS).
Our Community Advisory Network (CAN) of individuals impacted by the CJS and community partners/ service providers have guided all Cluster activities. Their voices and perspectives are invaluable to setting priorities for the health, wellbeing and dignity of all individuals and communities impacted by the CJS.
These collaborations hold the potential for transformative impact on society through deconolonizing, culturally safe, inclusive, strengths-based, participatory and meaningful engagement with individuals impacted by the CJS.
The Cluster is co-led by Helen Brown and Amanda Slaunwhite. The Project Coordinator is Samantha Young and our Peer Coordinator is Pam Young.
