Ending the death penalty. Addressing the role of trauma in the cycle of violence. Helping people harmed by crime and violence rebuild their lives.
Not everyone sees how all this work fits together. But you do, because you’ve been in the fight with EJUSA a long time.
You understand that our lifelong struggle has two sides. We must dismantle the many harmful parts of our justice system, like the death penalty. And we must build the new – justice that heals, communities that thrive, responses to violence that are rooted in racial equity and humanity.
It’s in your determination and actions – and the determination and actions of so many communities working to end violence, racism, and injustice – where hope lives.
We cannot wait. And that’s why we need you more today than ever. Thank you for all that you have made possible.
