What They Do
Georgia Justice Project strengthens our community by demonstrating a better way to represent and support individuals in the criminal justice system and reduce barriers to reentry. GJP promotes innovative change through direct legal representation, policy advocacy, education, and coalition building.
What We Love
GJP believes in second chances after an arrest, and envisions a Georgia where a criminal past does not limit a productive future. To that end, GJP serves low income people in Georgia who have been affected by the criminal justice system, working to remove barriers to employment, housing, and other opportunities. The range of direct services they offer includes holistic criminal defense paired with social service support, as well as representation for criminal records issues – all provided free of charge.
