From our own internal staffing to how we do our work, CHJ views what we do through the lens of equity, be it racial, gender, income, and/or geographic. This includes being intentional and deliberate to ensure that the voices of those who have been and might be impacted by the justice and behavioral health system are involved in the development of solutions. It also means collecting, evaluating and making decisions using data on equity.
