In 2003, Congress passed the landmark Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), recognizing that sexual abuse is a serious and persistent problem in correctional environments. The Vera Institute of Justice helped the Johnson County Department of Corrections form a partnership with the county’s sexual assault response team (SART) and develop a comprehensive sexual assault response policy for an adult community confinement facility and a local juvenile facility. The SARTs in Corrections website reflects the project’s work and the lessons learned throughout the process and features a guide to help facilities implement the PREA standards.

Social Ink is very pleased to lead the design and development for the Sexual Assault Response Teams in Corrections’ home on the web, a site disseminating the project’s guide for community confinement and juvenile detention facilities.

The interactive site leads administrators of local community confinement and juvenile detention facilities through the steps of connecting with a local SART. Administrators can download and print each part of the guide, including training materials and participant surveys.  Social Ink completed the graphic design of the guide’s print layout and in the CMS we built a custom interface for building new chapters dynamically. The site’s responsive design makes sure users will have an easy time viewing the information on most phones, tablets, and larger monitors.

We’re very glad to have worked with researchers and administrators from the Vera Institute of Justice on this tremendously important project. The PREA SARTs site represents our continuing work on websites for foundations, nonprofits, think-tanks, and government jurisdictions.

There are nearly 12 million admissions to local jails annually. The Safety and Justice Challenge is an initiative to reduce over-incarceration by changing the way America thinks about and uses jails.

Social Ink is thrilled to spearhead the web design and development for the MacArthur Foundation’s Safety and Justice Challenge, a major initiative working toward nationwide jail reform. Working alongside policy and research leaders at the Vera Institute of Justice, the website provides a staging platform for the grant-seeking competition, as well as issue-related resources, research and reports, and as an ongoing way to track progress by selected jurisdictions.

Additions to the site for the Phase 2 launch include an interactive map highlighting the Challenge’s site profiles and a resources section detailing research on the nation’s over-reliance on its jails and prison system. The site’s responsive design ensures the layout adapts for an array of tablets, phones, and larger monitors.

As a flagship site in early 2015, The MacArthur Safety Justice and Challenge represents our work in the nexus between nonprofits, think-tanks, foundations, and government jurisdictions.

Social Ink has been in NYC since 2007!
