Helping the men, women, and children impacted by incarceration, never doubt that they are Valuable & Powerful
Ignite Justice is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to foster community awareness and engagement to overcome the issues facing the justice system, incarcerated people, families, and the community, through education, support, and advocacy.
HUmane treatment of incarcerated indivduals
The humane treatment of incarcerated individuals is a vital part of a functioning justice system. We believe that incarcerated individuals, no matter their crime, deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. By treating incarcerated individuals with respect and understanding, we can create an environment of rehabilitation and healing. The United Nations adopted the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners and the Nelson Mandela rules. We firmly believe that these standards need to be codified in the United States. We are working to draft and introduce legislation to guarantee the humane treatment of incarcerated individuals.

Calls to Action
End Legalized Slavery
Prison labor has been a part of the U.S. economy since the late 19th century. Today it is a multi-billion-dollar industry with incarcerated people doing everything from building office furniture, making military equipment, fighting fires, staffing call centers, and doing 3D modeling.
The prison industrial complex (PIC) is a term we use to describe the overlapping interests of government and industry that use surveillance, policing, and imprisonment as solutions to economic, social, and political problems.
Over 4,100 corporations profit from mass incarceration in the United States.
We are working to end this practice in Virginia, and need your support.
