Make a world of Care, not Cages!

Our vision

We, the Cuyahoga County Jail Coalition, envision Cuyahoga county divesting from incarceration and transferring resources towards community care and rehabilitation. We envision Cuyahoga County democratizing justice and healing by antiquating the carceral system and its cultural attitudes. We envision community accountability to address the root causes of harm with alternatives to incarceration.

We are a small, scrappy fiscally-sponsored grassroots group and your donation can help us accomplish so much!

We are a people-powered community led by those impacted by the carceral system. We welcome n

all new members to our group.

We’re committed to cultivating a culture that’s community centered, restorative, trauma informed, and prioritizes a holistic approach towards healing and accountability.
