PROJECT

Los Angeles County created an Alternatives to Incarceration Initiative (ATI), which outlines 26 foundational recommendations to scale alternatives to incarceration and diversion, ensuring care and services are provided first and incarceration is used as a last resort. To support this work, the L.A. County Chief Executive Office is partnering with FUSE Executive Fellow Jean Ho to develop a strategic plan to implement the ATI’s recommendations, helping the county emerge as a leader in the national justice reform landscape.
