Welcome to the Georgia Justice Project Blog!
Welcome to the Georgia Justice Project blog! If you’ve found your way here, you likely know something about GJP and our intensive work on behalf of those in our community who find themselves enmeshed in the criminal justice system. (If you’re new to GJP, please check the “about us” link on the left). We hope that this blog can give you a glimpse at some of the struggles and victories (small and large) that we face here in our office each day. We’ll offer stories about our interactions with clients – putting a human face on the sobering statistics about the criminal justice system. We’ll provide information about state and national policies that adversely impact those caught up in the justice system, and encourage you to get involved. Above all, we hope to start a broader conversation with you and harness the power of social networking to create real change in the lives of those we serve.
is an unlikely mix of lawyers, social workers and a landscape company. We defend people accused of crimes and, win or lose, we stand with our clients while they rebuild their lives.
We believe this is the only way to break the cycle of crime and poverty.
