WHO WE ARE

Justice education project

The Justice Education Project is the very first national youth-led and youth-focused criminal justice nonprofit in the United States. Our mission is to empower Generation Z to advocate against the unjust policies and inequities in the US criminal justice system. We provide resources, activism tools, and opportunities to directly help current and formerly incarcerated people (especially women and children).  

We aim to break down societal apathy surrounding the incarcerated population by bringing youth proximate to incarcerated people.

Fiscally sponsored by the Power Shift Network.
