The Safe Return Project is achieving more with our 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 program 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.
RICHARD BOYD FELLOWSHIP
Our vision for the program is to grow a community 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 develop 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.

The Local Organizing Committee is a safe place for safe return community members to develop their organizing skills and take their leadership and apply them in building and organizing grassroots power towards the movement for mass liberation.
