Who are NCJA and ICJA?

Our Partnership

The Forum on Criminal Justice, taking place this year on November 2-4, is co-hosted by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) and the International Community Justice Association (ICJA). This online conference reflects the understanding that only by bringing together various parts of the justice system can real progress be made. Workshops will feature promising and innovative programs and strategies to address crime around the country; examine new research and evaluation on priority issues and highlight available resources within the Department of Justice. This year's conference will also feature a special track of workshops on deflection and diversion. 


We promote public safety through evidence-informed practices for justice-involved individuals through collaborative community-based treatment services, research and advocacy.


The National Criminal Justice Association exists to promote the development of justice systems in states, tribal nations, and units of local government that enhance public safety; prevent and reduce the harmful effects of criminal and delinquent behavior on victims, individuals, and communities; adjudicate defendants and sanction offenders fairly and justly; and that are effective and efficient.
