What We Do


Katal is a new organization with big ideas and bold, visionary goals. We're focused on:   

  • Ending mass criminalization, mass incarceration, and the war on drugs.
  • Promoting justice, equity, and community safety.
  • Advancing health-based approaches to drug policy.
  • Building leadership and organizing capacity of organizers, advocates, and community organizations.

The Katal Center for Health, Equity, and Justice is a growing team of professionals with decades of collective experience in community organizing, policy advocacy, strategy development, training, political campaigns and communications. We collaborate with our partners to build powerful, research-based campaigns to dismantle mass incarceration, end the war on drugs, and advance health, equity, and justice.
