Georgia Justice Project

Atlanta, Georgia



Through its legal, social and advocacy services, the organization breaks the cycle of poverty by defending the indigent criminally accused and helping them rebuild their lives. The Georgia Justice Project is using a two-year grant to bolster its organizational capabilities and to create a New Southern Strategy Coalition to improve access to employment, housing and benefits for Southerners who have a criminal history.
