The Campaign for Smart Justice, in partnership with the ACLU of Delaware and the Delaware Center for Justice is proud to announce Game Changers: a program designed to foster community leaders in Delaware by giving them the training and resources needed to effectively advocate for criminal justice reform and to address the issues that directly affect their own communities.
Who are the Game Changers?
Game changers are members of Delaware’s community who are currently or have previously been impacted by the criminal justice system. Some of them have convictions, some have been victims of crime, some have family members who are incarcerated, but all of them have a passion to shake things up, change the narrative around crime and prison and fix our broken criminal justice system.

What are the Game Changers Doing?
Our team of Game Changers started their journey with a series of workshops that trained them on the problems of the criminal justice system and how we can fix it, how to meaningfully engage with elected officials, leveraging community relationships and mobilizing community members to create change.
Now the Game Changers have their boots-on-the-ground and they’re doing presentations at community events, planning their own events, organizing in support of the criminal justice reform bills that have been introduced this session and building an army of community members to help keep the cause going strong through this legislative session and beyond.
