Program areas at EJI

Our efforts to improve justice and fairness in the criminal justice system have given us firsthand exposure to racially-biased mass incarceration as a major institutional system of racial inequality, and inspired the launch of our race and poverty project. Our race and poverty project works to promote a deeper understanding of the history of racial injustice in order to achieve the truth and reconciliation that overcoming historic injustices requires. Eji has embarked on an ambitious campaign to create new spaces, memorials, historical markers, and means for community engagement to address america's history of racial inequality.
