Join the Coalition

The Justice & Safety Alliance is a broad coalition of organizations committed to transforming how public systems operate in Memphis and Shelby County by collectively developing and advocating for equitable policies and practices, rooted in racial justice, that increase authentic safety, accountability, and healing. 

Our members represent and seek to support people who live in historically marginalized and criminalized communities, and who are disproportionately impacted by the juvenile and adult criminal legal systems, especially those who are Black, Latinx, immigrants, and LGBTQ+.

Our members represent people who are at a higher risk of contact with these systems, including victims and survivors of trauma and violence, people living in poverty, people who are unhoused, people with disabilities, people with mental health and substance use disorders, and youth and their families.

If you would like to join us in our work, please fill out this form. If you have any questions, please contact Makenzie Graham at

I understand that I am signing my organization on as a coalition partner for the Memphis and Shelby County Justice and Safety Alliance and any potential petitions, letter-writing campaigns, etc.
