What is RED?

Rehabilitation Enables Dreams (RED) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and restorative justice organization based in Atlanta, Georgia. RED’s mission is keeping people out of the criminal justice system – permanently – through programs that enhance the social, financial, and civic literacy of individuals referred to court.

We offer a 12-month Restorative Justice Curriculum that is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to leave the court system and reenter society as thriving members of the community.

What’s wrong with this picture?

The United States consists of only 5% of the worlds population and nearly 25% of its incarcerated population. In 2015 we spent $85 Billion on prisons and jails. The number of people incarcerated in the U.S. has grown from 200k in 1972 to over 2.2 Million today. These numbers are unacceptable and RED is here to provide solutions that lower crime while providing individuals who would otherwise not have the opportunity, the chance to lead lives of purpose.

The U.S has 5% of the world’s population but nearly 25% of its incarcerated population.

Our spending on jails and prisons reached $85 billion in 2015, an increase of 1000% from the $7.4 billion spent in 1975.

In 1972, there were only 200,000 people incarcerated in the United States. Today that number has grown to 2.2 million.
