About Us


Our Team

Our amazing team is everything! Our team of committed Evergreen State College students, staff, and alumni work with community partners to help reduce recidivism and provide resources for returning citizens and incarcerated Washington State residents. Our team coordinators have experienced the impacts of the criminal justice system and use their experiences and knowledge to collaborate with allies and other system impacted members to create real solutions for our population. All are welcome and make a difference!


Our History

Since 2018, the Justice-Involved student group (JISG) has created real change on Evergreen State College campus and the Washington State legal system. Through advocacy and support we've affected laws, built capacity, and formed a social network.


Our Mission

We focus on reducing recidivism through breaking down barriers to reentry and college by empowering our individual and collective voices. Using data driven, evidence-based models, we provide solutions that make a lasting difference in our populations lives.
