Justice - $25,000 Grantee
Just City advances policies, programs, and solutions that strengthen the right to counsel and mitigate the damage caused to families and communities because of contact with the criminal justice system. In addition to its slow, steady work of expungement, bail, and court debt reform, the nonprofit must be able to coalesce around other justice issues quickly and strategically as they arise. The Community Foundation grant will be used for general operations and existing programs so that, as these unexpected needs arise, Just City will be able to address them.
