Our mission is to fundamentally change the way in which the American political system addresses criminal justice issues, specifically as they affect the African-American community. We work toward this mission by utilizing the “20/20 Approach.” The 20/20 Approach to criminal justice reform is bipartisan, includes all relevant stakeholders from activists to law enforcement, and empowers local communities to implement meaningful and practical solutions to systemic problems in the justice system.We are the only nationwide coalition of black professionals with both Republican and Democratic members focused on criminal justice reform. By building bipartisan relationships and hosting solution focused conversations, the 20/20 Club is uniquely positioned to be a convener for criminal justice reform.
