Antoinette Ratcliffe

Executive Director

Antoinette’s passion for prison abolition and community development stems from lived experiences, as she fights for the freedom of her two loved ones currently incarcerated in CA prisons. She graduated from CSU Fullerton with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and used her organizational background to help develop small businesses in her community and create her own non-profit. She joined Initiate Justice in 2019, and has since led the Outside Organizer department, facilitated Institute of Impacted Leaders, and presented on this work in a variety of classrooms and conferences all over the state of California.

Antoinette became Executive Director in October 2022
