Mission:

EJUSA cuts through the polarization to build a criminal justice system that works for everyone. We envision a criminal justice system that is fair, effective, and responsive to everyone impacted by crime. A criminal justice system that is part of the solution instead of the problem – one that prevents violence before it occurs, helps crime victims rebuild their lives, and creates opportunities for former offenders so they won’t repeat the harm. A successful criminal justice system will mean fewer victims, fewer defendants, and more safety for all of us.

Results:

Our worked has helped end the death penalty in seven states in the last several years. We have built game-changing coalitions of law enforcement, crime survivors, falsely convicted exonerees, liberals and conservatives, civil rights groups, religious groups, and others to come together and find common ground to repeal the death penalty.

Geographic areas served:

National

Programs:

We partner with state organizations to expose the flaws in our nation’s death penalty and end it state by state. We also educate about the needs of crime survivors for services to for services to help rebuild their lives in the aftermath of crime.

EJUSA has provided game-changing leadership for the movement to end the death penalty. They are true visionaries, as well as amazing partners and collaborators. I rely heavily on their insight, wisdom and experience and their deep connections to a wide network of constituencies, especially conservatives, communities of color, and Evangelicals. Every conversation I have with an EJUSA staffer leaves me enriched, inspired and forever grateful.

I can't say enough positive things about Equal Justice USA! They have been essential in helping us achieve death penalty repeal in Connecticut. They recognized the potential in the Connecticut Network to Abolish the Death Penalty (CNADP) when we were just a small group of volunteers, and offered to help us get to the next level and beyond. EJUSA showed us how to become more professional and how to target our legislative and public education efforts strategically towards our goal. They continue to support us on a regular basis. And they have never sought credit for this work, nor financial support from us. Thank you, EJUSA!

What impresses me most about EJUSA is how cutting edge their view of healing our broken justice system is. Moving from anti-death penalty advocacy, they are one of the first organizations to turn me on to the growing and important restorative justice movement. Their big picture view and their cunning strategic sense leaves me confident that EJUSA will continue to be at the forefront of leading the US toward a justice system that works for everyone.

EJUSA has the energy, the expertise, the experience and the knowledge to help our country end the death penalty. Working for repeal in Nebraska, I was amazed by their commitment and their willingness to help our state on every level. EJUSA was with us all the way, encouraging us and contributing great ideas to the Nebraska organization's own hard work and strong commitment. They never gave in to discouragement, but always moved forward with a positive attitude to the next step. They're a personable and friendly bunch as well.

EJUSA continues to be the most responsive, strategic, and effective national criminal justice reform group I know. Whatever our needs, they are always there to fulfill them. Their advocacy for a justice system that addresses the needs of everyone impacted by crime is incredibly important, and very timely for our state. I look forward to our continued partnership.

Equal Justice USA plays a pivotal role in supporting the work of groups in the Death Penalty Moratorium and Abolition movement. Through candid guidance, dedicated energy, and enthusiastic commitment, members of the Equal Justice team make it possible for Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty to advocate for an end to our state's costly, arbitrary and bloated capital punishment bureaucracy. Stemming the tide of executions demands no less. Equal Justice USA stands at the ready and we are thankful for it.
