About the Work
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 spearheaded 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.
Highlights 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 Social Ink website, the MacArthur Safety Justice and Challenge represents our work in the nexus between nonprofits, think-tanks, foundations, and government jurisdictions.
