Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Direct Service

Our direct service to clients includes legal representation and wrap-around social services at all points of involvement with the criminal justice system, from holistic criminal defense to record restriction years after release. Clients have access both to our legal team and our social work staff, to help remove legal and social barriers they might face when re-entering their communities.

Population(s) Served
Ex-offenders
Economically disadvantaged people
People of African descent

Our legal staff travel statewide (increasingly virtually) to educate individuals, the legal community and service providers on criminal records issues. Additionally, our volunteer clinic coordinates pro bono lawyers interested in taking on GJP clients.

Population(s) Served

We have helped to pass 22 laws in our decade of policy work. Because our advocacy initiatives are heavily informed by our direct service work, we focus on changing laws that remove barriers to reentry that we have seen many of our clients experience. All of our policy efforts are intended to reduce the number of Georgians under correctional control.
