The Justice Project

Mission

The mission of the Justice Project, a peer based nonprofit human rights organization, is to provide criminal justice and social systems advocacy and navigation for women ( and transgenders identifying as female) in poverty who may be suffering from a multitude of challenges, including homelessness, discrimination, addiction, mental illness, domestic violence, prostitution or other forms of sexual exploitation.

Goals:

  • To encourage system challenged women in poverty to address criminal justice and social service system obstacles standing in the way of their recovery and independence, and to become accountable, responsible partners in their restoration.
  • To act as liaison between the women and police, courts, corrections, social services, and the community.
  • To promote an understanding of this challenged population through education of police, courts, corrections, social service providers, businesses, and the community, and to affect system change through training and interaction of system actors.
