Fair and Just Prosecution (FJP) brings together newly elected local prosecutors as part of a network of leaders committed to promoting a justice system grounded in fairness, equity, compassion, and fiscal responsibility. These recently elected leaders – and the vision they share for safer and healthier communities – are supported by FJP’s network through ongoing information sharing, research, and resource materials, opportunities for on the ground learning, in-person convenings, technical assistance, and access to our national experts.

Great strides have been made over the past few years in promoting criminal justice reforms that recognize that prior “tough on crime” and incarceration-driven practices don’t produce safer or healthier communities. New thinking is permeating the justice system and prompting proactive and prevention-oriented strategies.  

Against this backdrop, a new generation of reform-minded state and local district attorneys committed to changing their office culture and promoting a less punitive approach to addressing crime are being elected to office. Recently elected DAs in geographic areas ranging from Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, and Philadelphia to smaller rural communities are pushing back against the punitive “law and order” rhetoric of past decades and elevating a national conversation around the importance of a fair, equitable and right-sized justice system. FJP works with these leaders to support this new vision of justice and accountability.
