EJI

Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer and bestselling author of Just Mercy, EJI provides legal representation to the poor, the incarcerated, and the condemned facing execution or extreme punishment. We help people who have been wrongly convicted or unfairly sentenced. We represent children prosecuted as adults, people with disabilities, the disfavored and people of color who are vulnerable in a system that treats you better if you are rich and guilty than if you are poor and innocent.
EJI also works to advance truth and justice in America and to more honestly confront the legacy of slavery, lynching, and segregation. We have several sites in Montgomery, Alabama: our National Memorial for Peace and Justice, and Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration opened to widespread acclaim in April 2018. We have since opened the Peace and Justice Memorial Center and the Legacy Pavilion.
