The Equity Project

Equity Project Youth

The Equity Project is an initiative to ensure that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth in juvenile delinquency courts are treated with dignity, respect, and fairness.

Social Ink is excited to create a web platform for The Equity Project, a nonprofit organization that examines how issues of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression affect youth as they move through the juvenile delinquency system. The organization provides information on state and local juvenile justice agency LGBT and nondiscrimination policies as well as training materials and technical assistance for jurisdictions.

We worked with The Equity Project’s leaders and organizational partners to overhaul the site with a new design and information architecture schema. The site is responsive across phones, tablets, and monitors.

The Equity Project’s new site represents Social Ink’s work in the space between nonprofits, government agencies, and legal jurisdictions.

The Vera Institute’s new Status Offense Reform Center joins experts with lawmakers in proposing alternatives to the criminal justice system, especially around juvenile justice sentencing.

With team members at Vera’s SORC initiative, we workshopped around accessibility, audience, and user interface and experience (UI UX), building a site from the ground up, with a ‘soup to nuts’ scope ranging from visual identity to web-side information architecture and database design.  A key move for SORC was the inclusion of publications both on and offsite, a dynamic, meta-data driven filtering system, and a dynamic “how-to” toolkit for interested stakeholders.

The SORC team is doing great advocacy and educational work toward reform in New York City and throughout America; as part of our continued work with web design for nonprofits (and other organizations), Social Ink is proud to outfit them with the right tools for the job.

Justice and Health Connect aims to increase the ability of government agencies and community organizations to share information across behavioral health and justice systems.

We worked together with the Vera Institute team responsible for the project to create a logomark, visual identity and an advanced system to accommodate and provide access to the vast library of data they were publishing.  Integrating mailing list, print-only modes and filtration systems created a challenging, inspiring work environment with results we’re quite proud to share.  Together with JHConnect, we remain committed to projects involving public health and civil rights issues.

The Correctional Association of New York works for prison reform and a more humane and equitable criminal justice system.

Social Ink designed a new visual identity and developed an information packed website with resources, and multipronged outreach initiatives. As we worked to refine the key content delivery mechanisms and targeted audiences, we developed and launched a specialized cross-referenced resource database, and multiple templates for coalitions, issue oriented actions, press and media, and more.

We are proud to support the Correctional Association’s work to reform the criminal justice system in New York and beyond, as we continue our work building websites for nonprofits.
