Equal Justice USA (EJUSA) is a national, grassroots organization working to build a criminal justice system that is fair, effective, and responsive to everyone impacted by crime. We cut through the polarization and find common ground for lasting, real-world solutions that prevent violence and rebuild people's lives in its aftermath, so that all of us can be safer. We partner with state and local organizations to provide grassroots leaders with the training, leadership development, and support they need to win and have national impact. We are national leaders in the movement to end the death penalty, having helped end the death penalty in five states in the last five years. A new program, still in development, will help crime survivors in underserved communities to advocate for the services, policies, and programs they need to rebuild their lives and reduce violence in their neighborhoods.
