Known for its traditional values, Idaho is a welcome addition to the Right On Crime family of states and our advocacy for conservative criminal justice initiatives.

Working with lawmakers and thought leaders, we will continue to work toward a restorative justice system that eliminates the sources and causes of crime rather than simply hammering those who break the law.  Idaho is often referred to as the “last safe space for the American dream” while respecting the rights of individuals and restoring dignity to those impacted by crime.
