Review for Just Detention International, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Just Detention International is a group that is, quite simply, changing the world. Through policy reform, advocacy, and direct work with survivors of prisoner rape, this human rights organization has helped bring about the most significant prison reform in the United States in more than 30 years.

JDI has also begun to expand its work to parts of the world where HIV in prisons looms as a major threat to community health. This expansion will build on the group's reputation for hard-hitting advocacy and its expertise about what really works to keep people safe.

Notably, this group's impressive record of accomplishment has been undertaken with a lean budget and small but tenacious staff. I can't think of an organization more worthy of support!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing the way prisons, jails, and detentions centers are finally starting to take steps to address sexual violence behind bars.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find them more unrestricted resources, especially to help with their international expansion.
