The Justice in Government Project at American University

Justice for all improves lives and sustains our democracy. While some people know that civil legal aid serves those same ends, too few realize how civil legal aid also makes government more effective, efficient, and fair. The Justice in Government Project (JGP) works to turn that secret into common knowledge. The JGP helps state and local officials leverage civil legal aid to accomplish their policy and program goals, enabling people and communities to access housing, health care, safety, jobs, and many other basic necessities.
