The civil rights strategy of civil disobedience and public protest implemented civil rights leaders remain relevant today.

legal Support

The criminal justice system has a long record of human rights abuses. In addition to a newly-launched in-house Legal Support Unit,  AFJ refers to a pool of pro bono attorneys to provide legal support for individuals and family members whose human rights have been violated during their incarceration in prisons and local jails. 


Voting rights

We seek to restore full citizenship rights, including voting, to all people, regardless of their criminal history or incarceratory status. We also seek to empower those who currently have the right to vote to exercise that right.
