CAT 911

The vision of Community Alternatives to 911 is a city and region where local communities have the resources and strong, interpersonal relationships needed to respond constructively and healthfully to problems together.  We know that we cannot depend on the broken criminal justice system to solve our problems and that calling 911 often just makes the situation worse — if they respond at all.  CAT 911 is about building transformative justice that lets us take control of our lives and our communities into our own hands and nurtures each other’s growth and human possibility.
