On February 2, 2017, GJP partnered with 13 co-sponsoring organizations and 275 directly impacted individuals and concerned citizens from all across Georgia to promote criminal justice reform in our state. Attendees learned about current reform efforts, had the opportunity to speak directly to their legislators about these critical issues, and heard from leaders in the reform movement.
Below is an article in Living City, which gives an in depth summary of the 2017 Justice Day event.
“It’s clear that the changes advocated at Justice Day — organized by the Georgia Justice Project and in its fifth year— are not just about changing laws. Like the GJP’s main goal, the day is about defending the indigent criminally accused and improving their lives so they can still contribute to society in a meaningful way.”
