In accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and the City of Atlanta to mitigate the community spread of COVID-19, Georgia Justice Project (GJP) will temporarily suspend walk-ins and in-person appointments at its office location.
Despite these temporary measures to limit in-person contact, GJP staff will be working diligently to serve our clients through this crisis. We anticipate the challenges that our clients are likely to face during the pandemic and know that our support will be needed more than ever for individuals who were already experiencing unemployment and housing insecurities as a result of a criminal record.
GJP staff will be taking extra measures to minimize disruption of our work in this uncertain time. Staff members will work remotely and are reachable by phone or e-mail, and will conduct appointments via phone and video call. If you are a current client and need assistance, please contact your attorney or social worker directly. You can leave a message and they will return your call. If you are not a client but have questions about our services or the application process, please call one of the following lines:
- General Inquiries: 404-827-0027, ext. 213
- Criminal Records Intake: 404-827-0027, ext. 238
- Criminal Defense Intake: 404-827-0027, ext. 231 (note: our ability to visit applicants in jail is limited by restrictions in place at particular facilities)
We understand the importance of the well-being of our clients and staff, and will continue to serve our community while taking precautions against the spread of COVID-19. We will be closely monitoring the situation and will continue to send updates on our operations as they arise.
Our deepest gratitude to our friends and supporters during this trying time.
