JUSTICE IS NOT LINEAR.
It is not absolute, nor simple, nor free from human error. Justice will show you the worst of humanity, and it will ask you to be fair. It will demand your patience, your courage and your reason, even in the face of that which would defy reason.
To ensure that we are truly protected under the law, justice requires an unwavering commitment to what is right, not what is easy. And when its cycle fractures, when players fail to abide by the same rules or the rules fail in their clear understanding, the unthinkable happens. The already disadvantaged are plunged deeper in the grasp of violence and terror. The forgotten become the wrongly accused. And the very concept of what make us human is called into question.
This organization exists because we know that justice doesn’t end the day a verdict comes down. Justice is a full-circle endeavor, and the worth of all our lives hangs in its balance. We exist because justice—in all its forms and at every stage of the law—is our best defense against unforgivable cruelty.
