Recently we launched our third website dealing with the complicated nodes of the criminal justice world in the United States. As part of our larger work with nonprofit websites, this project was another initiative of the Vera Institute of Justice: The Status Offense Reform Center (SORC).
SORC is a resource center for lawmakers, policymakers and activists interested in reforming these systems, concerned primarily with juvenile justice and the criminalizing semantics of institutional and systemic intervention. The project adds to our work with The Correctional Association and Raise the Age – NY, in addition to Vera’s JH Connect project, to provide a cohesive groundwork for reform movements in the NYC area and beyond.
This major initiative was as challenging as it is vital, as we helped to integrate a library hundreds of resources and publications into an accessible interface and built a toolkit for reform with a narrative approach. With the SORC launch, we continue to work toward our mission of providing web design for nonprofits working across the social justice spectrum.
