Together, we can ensure access to fully informed juries for all.
Your donation is critical RIGHT NOW.
As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit many people hard—including in their pocketbooks. Long-time monthly supporters have regretfully requested to suspend their monthly giving due to the economic impact of the pandemic on their income.
At the same time, the right to trial by jury has largely been suspended in most courts in the United States for months now. Where it is coming back online, government is using this opportunity to further disempower jurors from fulfilling their protective role. You can bet a lot of these measures will become permanent if not opposed now! The clock is ticking on whether or not or full jury rights will be restored just as FIJA's operations and resources have taken major hits due to the pandemic. As a result, FIJA:
And, as has always been our policy, FIJA has maintained its independence by taking no funds from government. FIJA has not participated in the Paycheck Protection Program established by the CARES Act or any other government loan, grant, or other assistance program. Your voluntary donations are what keep FIJA going!

"When I read the stories of people's lives who are destroyed by a legal system run amok, I despair. It is when reading about lives saved by heroic juries who have the courage and wisdom to render a just verdict, regardless of the law, that I take heart and know that we are progressing as humans. Contributing to FIJA is one of the most important things I do to promote justice and well being for my fellow man."
