Designing Justice + Designing Spaces engages communities in the design and development of new buildings, spaces, and tools to attack the root causes of mass incarceration and create new prototypes such as peacemaking centers, transitional housing, and mobile villages. Together we can harness the power of the built environment to support the success and expansion of restorative justice, education, and workforce development programs instead of imprisonment.
In order to change the world, we must embody the transformation we want to see, both internally and externally.

San Francisco Department of Early Childhood
San Francisco Department of Early Childhood (SFDEC) believes that how a society supports young children and their families in the early years matters because the way we begin our lives lays the foundation for our future. We are committed to uplifting family members and caregivers, good nutrition, access to preventive health care and treatment, and support to those who make a positive difference in children’s and families’ lives, in order to encourage a system where every child can be safe, healthy, and thrive. Every year of a child’s life is precious, but the first 5 years are our most significant opportunity to inspire, nurture, and prepare children to reach their full potential. We provide public investment, expertise, and leadership to put resources in the hands of those who care for our city’s children.
