Mission and Values

Our Mission

Fighting injustice through access, advocacy, compassion, and education.

Our Values


We address injustices and failures in the criminal legal system and strive to right systemic wrongs, achieve redemption, center human dignity, and help those we represent to reclaim their lives.


We are a diverse group with varying ideas, beliefs, experiences, and abilities. We are committed to being open, welcoming, and supportive of all people.


We work to understand the lived experiences and perspectives of others and to relate to our colleagues and those we represent. 


We treat each other and the people we represent with appreciation and dignity and approach interactions with maturity, understanding, and open-mindedness. We are honest, ethical, and accurate in the messages we share with the world, each other, and the people we represent. We believe in each other and believe that each of us is motivated to act in the best interest of the team and the people we represent. 


We work to build fellowship, trust, and understanding with each other so we can be better for the people we represent and for the external community. Together, we recognize and acknowledge difficulties and we celebrate and champion successes.


We are committed to doing our best and to continually learning and improving our skills. We are passionate about our work. We are motivated to reach our full potential and to work with others to transform the legal system through passionate, thoughtful, and tenacious advocacy. We innovate, generate new possibilities, and strive to transcend what has always been.
