The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) does work related to the death penalty and how "racial disparities in our criminal justice system are a legacy of our history of racial injustice." I recommend a memoir written by Bryan Stevenson, founder of the EJI.
The Equal Justice Initiative is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.
Public Citizen's areas of advocacy include the climate crisis, corporate accountability, and Medicare for All.
Public Citizen is a nonprofit consumer advocacy organization that champions the public interest in the halls of power. We defend democracy, resist corporate power and work to ensure that government works for the people -- not for big corporations.
The Roosevelt Institute focuses on four major issue areas: Corporate power; education, jobs, and worker power; climate and economic transformation; and progressive thought.
The Roosevelt Institute is a think tank, campus network, and nonprofit partner to the FDR Library, working together to move the US toward a new economy and democracy by the people, for the people.
The Urban Justice Center's initiatives include Freedom Agenda, "dedicated to organizing people and communities directly impacted by incarceration to achieve decarceration and system transformation," Mental Health Project, which "advocates for low-income New Yorkers living with serious mental health concerns," and Surveillance Oversight Technology Project (S.T.O.P), which "highlights the discriminatory impact of surveillance on Muslim Americans, immigrants, and communities of color."
We provide a platform for dynamic advocates to fuel social change, leading the way for a just, fair, and decent society. By incubating the next generation of advocates, we ensure a better future for vulnerable communities.
