The public sphere is humming with conversation about Louisiana’s white supremacist non-unanimous jury law. This Washington Post piece, by John Legend, discusses the injustices that non-unanimous juries bring to all citizens of Louisiana. Legend asserts that non-unanimous juries create a “system in which felony trials are held without the full participation of African Americans.”

PJI is proud to be a member of the Unanimous Jury Coalition– a group of dedicated community members, organizations, and victims of the non-unanimous jury system.
