  • Is it possible to identify, invest, and support highly innovative enterprises working to eliminate the suffering caused by the US Criminal Justice System while returning power to those who have had it taken away from them?

Liz is a nationally recognized expert on the impact of incarceration and reentry on children and families.

Chris has been over 12 years of experience in impact investing.  Most recently, Chris was an Investment Manager at Serious Change Investments, an early-stage impact venture fund founded by Impact Investment pioneer Josh Mailman.  While at Serious Change, Chris served as the lead investment professional and Board observer for social justice-based investments (e.g.
