The Institute for Community Justice was founded as part of Philadelphia FIGHT’s commitment to working to reduce not only the number of people in prison living with HIV, but also the lasting effects of mass imprisonment on communities most affected.
The Institute for Community Justice is a comprehensive prison services and reentry program providing health linkages, supportive services, education, and advocacy for individuals, families and communities impacted by mass incarceration.
The mission of ICJ is to serve any person impacted by mass incarceration by providing support services that empower those affected to thrive as their fullest selves. We envision a world free from mass incarceration where communities have equitable access to health, safety, justice, and the opportunity to design their freedom.
Our Reentry Center is designed to equip and empower individuals and their families who have been impacted by mass incarceration. Our reentry team supports individuals with accessing critical resources and information, and provides educational programs focused on skill-development, community/civic engagement, and advocacy.
