Budget for Justice (BfJ) is an alliance of organizations working to create alternatives to the formal justice system that are more capable of achieving safety, health, healing and reconciliation. We speak with a unified voice to increase safety and justice in our city, and call on the city to demonstrate fiscal responsibility by winding down outdated approaches to public safety that do more harm than good. BfJ aims at the 2019-2020 biennial city budget process, with the goal of making Seattle safer by disinvesting the city from punitive systems and reallocating the savings in effective community-based solutions.
