Our Work

Cognitive Justice Intl. (CJI), envisions a world where justice-involved and underserved communities have equitable access to transformative education, empowering them to break the cycle of incarceration and community violence to create pathways to success. Our vision is grounded in the belief that every individual, regardless of their past, deserves the opportunity to build a better future through education and cognitive empowerment.

Overview for Cognitive Justice Intl.

We strive to be a beacon of cognitive justice, fostering a society that values transformation over punishment. Our vision encompasses a network of agencies, working hand-in-hand with justice-involved individuals and underserved communities. Through education and skill-building, we aim to dismantle systemic barriers and cultivate a culture, of resilience, community, and self-sufficiency.



Cognitive Justice training uses a “Clinical and Peer-Based Approach.” Meaning that we consider an agency’s goal and purpose along with the circumstances, experiences, and history of the populations they serve. CJI works to bridge the gap between populations and agencies by utilizing comprehensive and holistic strategies that lead to encompassing justice solutions.



Lone Star Community Violence Intervention Alliance (LCA), an integral arm of CJI, plays a crucial role in our vision. We envision safer and more harmonious communities achieved through comprehensive and structured violence intervention programs. Our school and community-based initiatives are designed to reduce and mitigate violence within educational institutions and communities, fostering an environment where students, staff, and the community can thrive without the fear of harm.


Our Vision

In our vision, Cognitive Justice Intl. stands as a catalyst for societal transformation, advocating for policies that prioritize, intervention, rehabilitation, education, and community. Through our efforts, we aspire to create a world where Cognitive Justice prevails, allowing everyone to rewrite their narrative, contribute meaningfully to society, and ultimately break the cycle of violence and promote equitable opportunities to thrive."
