Center on Crime, Race, and Justice Launch Week

Celebrate the launch of CRJ with a series of lectures and a launch party in our newly rebranded space!

Our Mission

Based at Northeastern University’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, the mission of the Center on Crime, Race, and Justice (CRJ) is to make the criminal justice system more equitable and just for all.

Our Work

The labs of CRJ position race and diversity at the forefront of research to understand how diverse communities are differentially impacted by crime, violence, and responses to crime. Our work aims to provide evidence-based reforms to address these disparities in the system.
