Across the state, dozens of advocacy organizations have been fighting for decarceration and calling for the safe release of people from prisons. The Redemption Campaign aims to join and fuel this decades-long movement, offering another tool and another path toward significant, permanent decarceration that will bring thousands of our neighbors safely home.

The Second Chance Center, Inc. (SCC) is a Colorado based nonprofit organization determined to be the state’s premier community re-entry program and a model for the nation. SCC offers case management, mentoring, and vital resources to assist formerly incarcerated individuals in reestablishing their lives and becoming successful members of the community.
Founded in 1999, the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition (CCJRC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to eliminate the overuse of the criminal justice system and advance community health and safety. We are people convicted of crime, survivors of crime, and the families and allies of both. We advocate and organize for public safety strategies that are more holistic, effective and just.
The mission of the Office of the State Public Defender is to defend and protect the rights, liberties, and dignity of those accused of crimes who cannot afford to retain counsel. We do so by providing constitutionally and statutorily mandated representation that is effective, zealous, inspired and compassionate.
Our mission is to empower defense counsel in trial level capital cases by equipping teams with nationally recognized skills and best practices. We seek to level the playing field between the defense and the prosecution in death penalty cases.
The ACLU of Colorado is the state’s oldest and largest civil rights organization. Our mission is to protect, defend and extend the civil rights and civil liberties of all people in Colorado through litigation, legislation, education and advocacy.
