Community Passageways (CP) is a Seattle based nonprofit founded in 2017 with a vision for zero youth incarceration. As a felony diversion and prevention program, CP is leading the way in reimagining and actively creating an alternative to today’s criminal legal system.
Over the last 20 years in Seattle, we have seen a sharp decline in the number of young people in detention. But even as the overall number decreased, our current juvenile legal system has a disproportionately harmful impact on youth of color, particularly black youth. While only 10% of King County’s 2 million residents are black, they now make up almost half of the detention population on any given day, and more than half of felony offenses.
We have a four-pronged approach to community justice:
Prevention: Keep youth on a good path. Show them new paths.
Diversion: Keep people out of the prison system and in community.
Support: Support people already in the prison system.
Reintegrate: Ensure a smooth, successful integration into the community.

Girls Who Code at Home Activities!
We know that parents, educators, and girls are looking for support and connection during these challenging times. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to school closures and significant disruption to daily life, Girls Who Code is making CS educational activities available for download free of charge, to anyone who wants to access them.
We will release activities weekly — some online, some offline, of varying levels of difficulty—over the course of the next few months. Each activity will include a feature of a woman in tech who pioneered innovative technology.
