Founded in 1989, EJI provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons. In addition to challenging the death penalty and excessive punishment, EJI provides re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people and works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment. EJI is committed to changing the narrative about race in America by producing groundbreaking reports, calendars, and short films and research and recommendations to assist advocates and policy makers. EJI also has embared on a new national effort to create new spaces, markers, and memorials that address the legacy of slavery, lynching, and racial segregation.
Your donation supports EJI's multi-pronged approach to address the racial inequity and racial injustice which shape many issues today and to support criminal justice reform.
