Thank you for visiting!

Now that we have your attention, how can we get theirs?

How can we effectively convey this message about avoiding becoming entangled in the American justice system to your sons, nieces, spouses, parents, and elected officials?

We need your concern, ideas, compassion, and your (tax deductible) support!

About Us

We ask that you Fight with us to achieve Justice Equality and Fair Policies for ALL.

Equal Justice Matters was conceived out of a desire to proactively educate the youth, families, community leaders, and policymakers about the unequal treatment of marginalized Blacks, Whites, and People of Color within the American Criminal Justice System. We aim to teach people how to avoid becoming a casualty of the failed War on Drugs or becoming entangled in the unjust system in general.

Help us advocate for Equal Education, Job Training, Fair Employment, Mental, and Health Care, and Affordable Housing for All.  We ask for your support to advocate ensuring people have hope, equity, meaningful resources and equality so that they may avoid despair, hate, poverty, gangs, violence, illiteracy, drugs, and crime.

About Equal Justice Matters Video

Equal Justice Matters is a non-profit, grass roots organization aimed at educating the community about injustices within the U.S. criminal justice system and keeping young adults out of prison.

“So let’s look at the statistics. The United States is home to 5 percent of the world’s population, but 25 percent of the world’s prisoners. Think about that. Our incarceration rate is four times higher than China’s. We keep more people behind bars than the top 35 European countries combined.”

President Barack Obama (D), NAACP conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, July 14, 2015

MODERN PRISONS – MODERN SLAVERY

113 million adults (45%) have had an immediate family member incarcerated for at least one night. The U.S. justice system controls 6.7 million people, more than half of whom are on probation. If you think this doesn’t affect you, your loved ones, or your friends, consider that an estimated one in three Americans will be arres­ted by the age of 23. The American criminal justice system holds almost 2.3 million people in:

1,833 State Prisons
122 Federal Prisons
1,772 Juvenile Correctional Facilities
3,134 Local Jails
218 Immigration Detention Facilities
90 Indian Country Jails

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

If you think it can’t happen to you, think again! We make community education a priority so the public can avoid becoming entangled in the hostile justice system.
 
Our primary objective is to offer educational information. In many instances we show the unfairness of our laws coupled with the unfortunate circumstances that may have helped to ensnare others.

PROACTIVE JUSTICE REFORM

Our vision is to work with You, Business leaders, Community advocates, Celebrities, Parents, Sport figures, Students, Corporations, and Politicians to purchase or build a city, town, or community where kids can be supported with safety, compassion and understanding and be able to easily learn life skills.  Kids will learn how to hold meaningful conversations, learn to read; a measuring tape instead of a drug scale; use a power tool instead of a gun; draw blood instead of injecting or ingesting an illegal drug; debate, argue and fight a court case, instead of arguing, fighting and ending up in criminal court.

ADVOCACY PROGRAMS

It is our goal to be an advocate for individuals in need within our community and in our jails and prisons.
 
Bail/Bond Program: We are posting up to $200 to individuals with low bail that have been accused of low-level, non-violent, and non-sexual related crimes.
 
Jobs Over Guns Program: Imagine a community in which people are given the opportunity to put down their gun in exchange for a job.
