The Criminal Justice Policy Coalition works on a number of issues related to police conduct, prison conditions and sentencing reform within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In 2003/04 our major focus is the establishment of a citizen review board for the Department of Corrections, with secondary foci of Mandatory Minimum sentencing and Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) reform.

All work is accomplished by the volunteer board, comprised of community activists, university professors from various disciplines, and individuals who have worked, or are working, as volunteers within the prison system. As well, members of the organization assist in a number of ways. There are no stipends available for working with the CJPC either as an intern or as a citizen activist.
