The Safe Return Project is achieving more with our strategic policy initiatives than ever before. With that understanding comes the responsibility of training the most underserved and underrepresented members of our community. The Safe Return Project's leadership programs are unique in that we acknowledge our communities’ whole selves and do not discriminate in developing their leadership and preparing them to be civically engaged.
COLLECTIVE IMPACT INSTITUTE
The Collective Impact Leadership Institute fosters leadership among adults and youth who have been directly impacted by the criminal legal system. It is committed to investing in the personal transformation of all formerly incarcerated people working to build their lives in Richmond and throughout Contra Costa County.
LOCAL ORGANIZING COMMITTEE
The Local Organizing Committee is a nurturing place for Safe Return community members to develop their leadership skills so they may apply them in building and organizing grassroots power towards the movement for mass liberation in their communities.
RICHARD BOYD FELLOWSHIP
Our vision for the program is to grow a culture of formerly incarcerated community organizers and leaders to lead the movement for mass liberation and begin that work here at home in Contra Costa County. We want to empower leaders that will advocate and speak truth to power, analyze and put together data to tell the story of truth, and light the path for others to follow in their footsteps as they boldly lead us to a new future and way of living.
