Rittenhouse envisions and works towards a non-carceral, accountable and just society that promotes government responsibility, community accountability and care for all members of society and the resolution of conflicts and social harms without resorting to exclusion and punishment.
We promote structural equality, de-colonization, abolitionism, decarceration, decriminalization and transformative justice. To further these principles and objectives we engage in public education, community training, and directed advocacy. We work in partnership with a diversity of communities and organizations informed by our mission and core values. We provide services for people in contact with the criminal justice system and maintain a commitment to conflict resolution in both our external activities and internal work.
