Our Vision:


Our Mission

The Equitas Project is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that focuses on disentangling mental health and criminal justice. Our mission is to cultivate a shared commitment to prioritize personal liberty and human potential over punishment and confinement.

Public awareness and discussion
both locally and nationally
are vital.

We work locally and nationally to:

  • Raise awareness. Underscore the urgency of culture change and systems reform.
  • Bring allies together. Set the stage for innovative conversations and ambitious goal-setting with allies.
  • Propel continuous progress toward better mental health outcomes.
  • Identify and disseminate bright ideas and successful practices.

The Equitas Project's founders are committed to disentangling mental health and criminal justice.
