We believe that change is possible.

Our mission is to activate hearts and minds by uplifting stories of hope, redemption and humanity from people impacted by mass incarceration.

Academy Award, Emmy Award and Grammy Award Winning Artist and Activist Common dedicated countless hours advocating for criminal justice reform. In partnership with PLUS ONE society, Common engaged with local communities and activists to instill hope in the men and women inside prison as part of his Hope & Redemption Tour that started in 2017.

In August, Common hosted a special free community concert, Imagine Justice, on the grounds of the Capitol building in Sacramento with J. Cole, Andra Day, Ledisi, Goapele, Van Jones, DeVon Franklin and more to advocate for criminal justice reform and share a message of hope, love and compassion for an audience of over 25,000 people.

Following his visit to the State Capitol, Common traveled to Folsom State Prison and Lancaster State Prison to perform for the men in prison. After the success and impact of the Imagine Justice concert and the Hope & Redemption Tour, Common decided to establish and launch Imagine Justice as a new nonprofit.

We want to abolish mass incarceration and rebuild a system of accountability that restores human dignity and purpose for all those impacted. Our programs work in collaboration with impacted people to help reframe the narrative around incarceration and extend supports for rehabilitation throughout communities.
