Equal Justice Initiative

The Equal Justice Initiative’s mission is to end mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States and to challenge racial and economic injustices in the legal system. Their work includes advocacy for criminal justice reform—including abolition of the death penalty—as well as public education projects that include books, documentary and feature films, websites, lesson plans and community programs. Just Mercy, a #1 best-selling book written by the group’s founder, Bryan Stevenson, was adapted into an Academy Award-winning feature film in 2019. They also recently began a national effort to create spaces and memorials that address the legacy of slavery, lynching and racial segregation. Learn more at EJI.ORG

Innocence Project

The mission of the Innocence Project is to “free the staggering number of innocent people who have been wrongfully incarcerated and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment.” Their work includes policy reform, education, research and support for exonerees post-release. Their research estimates that about 5% of all prisoners in the United States are innocent. To date, the Project has exonerated 375 people; nearly 70% are people of color and 21 had served time on death row. Learn more at INNOCENCEPROJECT.ORG
