About Us

Equal Justice USA (EJUSA) is a national organization that works to transform the justice system from one that harms to one that heals. Our work includes ending the death penalty, strengthening programs that help crime survivors address trauma and rebuild their lives, and promoting trauma-informed responses to violence that can save lives and help heal communities.

Our Vision

We imagine a justice system that provides effective, trauma-informed responses to violence and crime; invests in accountability that is restorative; supports those harmed by crime; coordinates with other systems to address trauma and promote the health and safety of communities; and seeks to acknowledge and repair historical trauma, racial bias, and lack of trust - particularly in disenfranchised communities.
