Yes! I want to invest in fully infored jurors!
Jury trials are slowly resuming nationwide, but despite that, government has been giving itself excuse after excuse to continue violating people's right to a speedy trial while continuing to imprison massive numbers of people without conviction on a pre-trial basis with no end in sight. While officials act like this is an terrible burden to them, in fact, evidence is now coming out that this is working in their favor as incarcerated people have felt ever more pressure to forfeit their right to trial by jury and take a plea bargain.
Don't let the government use the pandemic to further usurp our right to trial by jury and prevent jurors from fulfilling their protective role!

"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."
