The extension of our mission is to educate, support and organize individuals, families and communities.

Nationally and Internationally


The Center for Resilient Individuals, Families and Communities (CRIFC) is committed
to the sustainability of healthier communities across the southern region and beyond by employing abolitionist tactics centering folks and their families directly impacted by mass incarceration.
