The Center For NuLeadership On Urban Solutions Inc

Brooklyn, NY, US mdi-circle-small


The mission of the Center for NuLeadership on Urban Solutions (CNUS) is to shift the paradigm and practice of public safety, justice and accountability from criminal justice to human and healing justice, which we define as the merger of human rights and human development. We provide research, advocacy and leadership training to formerly incarcerated people, their families, communities, allies and criminal justice professionals. CNUS is the first and only independent public policy, research, training and advocacy organization designed and developed by formerly incarcerated academics and staffed by people directly impacted by the legacy and history of criminalization in the us. In 2001, our late founder, Eddie Ellis, convinced open society foundation to assist in convening formerly incarcerated leaders to articulate a new vision of criminal justice based on their personal and professional experience, resulting in NuLeadership policy group (2003), a national think tank later housed at medg.
