Thursday, February 25, 2021, All day event
Justice Day is the annual advocacy day of the Justice Reform Partnership, a coalition of over fifty organizations working in the state of Georgia and elsewhere around the issues of criminal legal reform and justice.
The theme of Justice Day 2021 is “Where Do We Go From Here: Community over Chaos,” inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.’s similarly titled 1967 book. After 2020––a year of chaos–– Justice Day 2021 asks how we can build community moving forward.
This year, we’ll cover last year’s legislative accomplishments and setbacks, review the impact and outcomes of the 2020 uprisings and the coronavirus pandemic, propose a vision for where Georgia can go in the coming year, and offer opportunities to get involved, to advocate directly to legislators, and to support those who are most impacted by the criminal legal system.
Justice Day is the JRP’s biggest event of the year, where we provide people from across Georgia with an opportunity to learn about criminal legal reforms; strengthen and build relationships with people in their communities and across the state; and advocate to their state legislators for a criminal legal system based on equity in administration and justice in application of the law.
At Justice Day 2021, we will:
Cover the legislative and movement accomplishments and setbacks of 2020.
Review pending legislation and opportunities for reform and advancement in 2021.
Offer opportunities to get involved, to advocate directly to legislators, and to support those who are most impacted by the criminal legal system.
