The Valley Justice Coalition has a gathered a group of area residents with lived experience related to the criminal justice system who are willing to speak to groups. Our speakers bring palpable stories their experiences to specific changes we are advocating in our local criminal justice system.

Potential topics:

  1. incarceration
  2. reentry
  3. incarceration of a family member
  4. interacting with police amidst mental health crisis

If you would like a speaker for your club, congregation, or event, please contact us.

Also, if you or someone you know has lived experience that may be relevant to our work, please consider talking to us. Even if you’re not comfortable speaking in public, you could be a great help to us in talking with individual decision-makers, anonymous anecdotes, or other mediums.
