Sobre Nós

Until the systemic inequalities of the criminal justice system are addressed, irrelevant factors like poverty, race, gender, and geography will continue to define who receives our nation's most serious punishment.

A fair trial means having the assistance of a caring and competent defense team. A fair trial means having access to the resources necessary to investigate the case and the background of the accused. It is our belief that every capital defendant is entitled to a fair trial.

In service of that belief, The Fair Trial Initiative:

  1. Provides two-year fellowships for new lawyers to work on death penalty trials;
  2. Provides summer and semester internships to law students, social work students, and undergraduates interested in death penalty defense;
  3. Recruits private lawyers to lend their assistance to capital trials on a pro bono basis;
  4. Educates the public on the administration of the death penalty.

FTI fulfills its mission by recruiting and training lawyers and other professionals to assist with representation in individual cases; promoting a multidisciplinary approach and teamwork in capital defense; and continuously introducing innovative approaches to the defense of death penalty cases. FTI also promotes reform through public education.
