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.

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 five states in the last five 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.
