South Phoenix groups to brainstorm about “Justice Reinvestment” funds

As the state of Arizona prepares to release its first round of “reinvestment in justice” money generated by the legalization of marijuana, organizations south of Phoenix are brainstorming how to spend that money.

Two of these organizations, Project Roots and the TigerMountain Foundation, are part of a larger network of Arizona-based organizations that envision what reinvestment programs in justice could be.

They aim to help the Arizona Department of Health Services get a better idea of ​​how to distribute multimillion-dollar grants.

Rosalind Akins said she hopes to see justice reinvestment funds support access to food and mental health.

“Mental health doesn’t necessarily mean taking them to a practitioner or psychologist or therapist,” she said at a DHS-funded hearing hosted by the TigerMountain Foundation recently at Brooks Academy in South Phoenix. “It could include that, but there are other things that bring joy and healing to such a disparate community.”
