Mission

Our goal is one just system in Los Angeles County: centered on strong communities and practical resources, not prisons.

ONE JUST SYSTEM holds people accountable when laws are broken, and holds itself accountable for responding in ways that increase safety and prevent future crimes. Care is taken to understand the circumstances of every child and adult in the system. People are treated equitably without regard to wealth or race. Legal representation is fair. Consequences are compassionate and designed to develop potential, with incarceration used only as a last resort. One just system counts every person’s well-being as a measure of the whole community’s health, and looks to communities first for solutions.

Justice systems across the U.S. have bypassed these principles. Currently, the system in LA County stands out nationally for its problems. At JMLF, we believe in LA County’s potential to develop one just system and become a different kind of leader—in a movement toward true justice nationwide.
