The Justice Project (TJP) is a nonpartisan organization dedicated to fighting injustice and to creating a more humane and just world. Founders of The Justice Project are veterans of war who have risked their lives fighting injustice. Their military experiences left them with an understanding of human suffering and a desire to leave a legacy of fairness for future generations. TJP’s current program is the Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform.
The Justice Project (TJP) is comprised of two separate corporate entities, The Justice Project, Inc., a 501(c)(4) organization, and The Justice Project Education Fund (formerly The Criminal Justice Reform Education Fund), a 501(c)(3) organization. The Justice Project uses a broad range of tools, including public education, coalition building, citizen action and direct political engagement with state and national lawmakers, to build bipartisan support to promote fairness and accuracy in the criminal justice system. Although the work of the two organizations is closely related, only The Justice Project, Inc. engages in legislative lobbying.
