Smart on Prison Reform and Criminal Justice.
The Howard League has a long history of working for prison reform and criminal justice in Aotearoa. We are lawyers, academics, chaplains, students, prisoners, whanau and, generally, people who care.
We believe that evidence and research should drive crime and justice policy: not myth, rhetoric or the false hope that punishment alone will work.
The Howard League:
If you believe, as we do, that this is the way to develop a more effective and humane criminal justice system, we hope you'll join us.
The Howard League meets regularly in Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. See each branch's page for details.
