Reviews for Alliance for Justice

Rating: 5 stars  

AFJ is a much need nonprofit in a society that is far too apathetic. We must never give up our Constitutional rights to a trial by jury, to the right to legal counsel, to refuse to be dragged from our homes in the night, never to be heard from again. If we give up our freedom to fear, corrupt politicians, and the military-industrial complex, then the terrorists will have won. They will have destroyed what is unique and glorious about our country.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Push Obama even harder. He is destroying our freedom, just as surely as any warmonger.

I get very depressed about how little information I have to base my moral opinions and actions on, about important governmental decisions that will impact my life without me knowing until it's too late. I rely heavily on the tireless work of Alliance for Justice so that I can keep my faith and my energy going in the right direction. For that I am very grateful - thanks!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I think that my personal benefit has been in being kept aware of all that is going on in the Judicial System, and ways I can continue to be aware and exert pressure for reform.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Be a millionaire and donate tons of money to them.
