GLOSSARY OF SUGGESTED TERMS

The Board of Directors of ACCJH is conscious of stigmatizing terminology which is often used to describe justice involved persons and populations. As such, we are promoting first-person language which we believe is more humanizing, to describe people who are involved in the criminal justice system. We support recommendations by the Osborne Association and seek to eliminate stigmatizing language in conference print materials, proceedings and presentations. To that end, we ask proposers to exclude the terms below from their proposals and presentations, substituting them with the suggested (or similar) terms.

 

Terms to be avoided                                                                             Preferred terms

Convict, Con, Inmate, Prisoner                                                            Person who is incarcerated

Offender, Criminal                                                                           Person in pre-trial or with charge

Parolee                                                                                                 Justice-involved person
