What We Do / Solutions


Our data tools and services help communities drive the change they want to see. Courts, police, prosecutors, advocates, and activists can all use our solutions to reshape how the criminal justice system works for them.

Whether your goal is to improve data, use data, or make data available to the public, we can help. No matter where you are on your data journey, we will meet you right where you are.

Data Powered Change


Commons is a community-driven data tool that helps shape criminal justice policy. Developed with the public and their public servants, the platform makes available criminal justice data and shared policy goals so that communities have access to how their local criminal justice systems are handling cases.


High-quality data is a vital first step on the road to a more transparent and accountable criminal justice system.
With Groundwork, we help agencies get their data ready for transparency.


Better decision-making beings with better data.

Prosecutors collect data on charges, cases, defendants, victims, court and case events – most relying on case management systems (CMS) to do so. But there are no national standards or best practices.

What data should be collected? How should these data be recorded? How can the information be used for more transparent and accountable decision making?

Wayfinder takes the guesswork out of this process.

Wayfinder helps prosecutor offices evaluate the strengths and challenges of their current data practices, provides specific recommendations for improvement, and puts them on the right path to having reliable data they can share with the public and use to make better decisions.

Community Engagement

Our Community Engagement services bridge the gap between data and change, fostering accountability. We empower communities to leverage data effectively, offering outreach, bridge-building, and data literacy education. Through community engagement, we enable better data-driven decision-making.

Are you All In?

To scale our mission toward empowering communities to reshape the criminal justice system, we launched All In, a peer-to-peer network that connects individuals across the country to support the effort to get to a more transparent, accessible, and accountable system.
