Restoring Promise Toolkit

Grant awarded: $44,000

The Restoring Promise Toolkit is a call for healing and imagination. The goal of the toolkit is to offer a design process for those who live, work and experience carceral spaces. Through cards, posters and prompts included in the toolkit, those who are experts of their space can imagine places of restoration, reconciliation, respect, accountability and investment. By designing for decarceration, this project invests in restorative justice and champions human dignity, so that those entangled in the system can invest in their fullest potential and support their return home.
