What We Do

The Promise of Justice Initiative is a private, non-profit organization that advocates for humane, fair, and equal treatment of individuals in the criminal justice system. Our dedicated board members, staff and volunteers are committed to our Constitution’s promises of justice and dismayed by society’s shortcomings in making good on them.

Areas of Focus

  • Ending the death penalty
  • Fixing inhumane conditions of confinement
  • Exposing prosecutorial and judicial misconduct
  • Eliminating poor representation of criminal defendants
  • Ending racial discrimination in the criminal justice system
