Address:

20 Jay Street Suite 808 Brooklyn NY 11201 USA

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.

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 does fantastic work to make the justice system truly work for all members of our society. Everyone on the staff is passionate about the work and unendingly dedicated. This is truly an amazing organization.

I had the pleasure of first working with the staff of EJUSA during the Maryland death penalty repeal campaign. I found them to be extraordinarily knowledgeable, hard-working, thorough, and just all-around fantastic people. They worked behind the scenes and were pivotal in the victory, but never took it as an opportunity to take credit away from others who worked very hard as well. I've been lucky to cross paths with them again on other projects and events and hope to continue to do so in the future. I cannot say enough good things about this organization!

I volunteered for Equal Justice USA several years ago but still recall my extremely positive experience with the organization. My time with EJUSA ultimately helped to prepare me for a future full-time role at a renowned non-profit org and I truly credit my volunteer experience at EJUSA for helping me to land the job. EJUSA is extremely well run and truly grassroots. I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in volunteering and/or working for the organization in any capacity!
