JustSpeak’s vision is a society that gives everyone what they need while caring for each other and the planet. We dream of a world where everyone has a roof over their head, food on the table, and time to spend with loved ones. Where we’ve reimagined justice to be about health and not handcuffs and where we’ve closed the last prison - for good
