In the fight against the death penalty, seeing the full picture counts.

Community Resource Initiative

Full Picture Justice (formerly known as CRI) is an anti-death penalty nonprofit resource center serving the people, families, and communities impacted by imprisonment.

We’ve changed our name to better reflect our mission, but nothing’s changed about the way we help legal defense teams stop executions. We bring the full story of our clients' lives into the courtroom—so judges, prosecutors and juries can see the full picture of their humanity.
