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?

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 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.
