Just City

Just City was founded in Memphis in 2015 to advance policies and programs that strengthen the right to counsel and mitigate the damage caused to families and communities because of contact with the criminal justice system. Inspired by and aligned with the local public defender’s office, Just City serves public defender clients and others who are or have been in contact with the criminal justice system to help them achieve economic self-sufficiency and reduce their chances of re-offending. We advocate for a smaller, fairer, and more humane criminal justice system. We pursue reforms that will help eliminate wealth-based disparities in the criminal justice system.
