The De-Carceration Fund is designed to invest and support highly innovative enterprises that are working to eliminate the suffering caused by the US Criminal Justice System through a radically different fund model that is focused on returning power to those who have had it taken away from them.
The US Criminal Justice System directly impacts 6.6 million people, at a direct cost of more than $80 Billion per year. This profoundly broken system is marred by racial disparities, extractive business practices, and misaligned incentives.
The vast majority of private sector solutions in this sector are driven by misaligned incentives and exploitative business models, however the opportunity exists to find highly innovative and non-extractive private sector business models that address the injustices of mass incarceration. The fund will invest in ventures that are working to Prevent Entry, Reduce Suffering, and End the Cycle.
