"Too many of our citizens have cause to doubt our nation's justice."
The "Access to
Justice" campaign is dedicated
ACCESS TO JUSTICE (www.access-to-justice.org) is an independent research organization, seeking out, questioning, and redressing instances of human and civil rights violations and wrongful convictions. Our intention is to be a whistle-blower in cases where abuse of authority or corruption are evident, and to ensure that access to justice is not predicated upon an ability to afford it.
The right to adequate legal representation regardless of material means is fundamental to civilized society. It is a right constantly challenged and often violated... as is the principle of presumed innocence.
The press is often instrumental in exposing injustice and corruption... but this is not enough. In order to make a greater difference, a specifically dedicated and vocal lobby group is needed, as well as more research and access to legal resources. We highlight cases that merit public scrutiny, and invite opinions, articles, and professional assistance from attorneys, lawmakers, legal experts, paralegals, researchers, investigators, and journalists.
We are a non-profit organization, privately funded, and donations make a great deal of difference to our work and to the individual cases listed on this website. If you would care to sponsor...
