A Just Cause
A Just Cause is a 501(c)(3) organization that was established in 2005 by a group of concerned citizens who were witness to a federal criminal case that was grossly over-criminalized. After seeing how a case can be misconstrued as criminal, and peoples' lives turned upside down, A Just Cause was formed to fight abuse and misuse of power within the justice system. After launching AJC, it became apparent that over-criminalization is a growing trend. AJC is made up of regular citizens who want to bring attention to a problem and help facilitate change.
