Harvard College Project for Justice

Purpose Statement

The Harvard College Project for Justice is dedicated to the awareness and advocacy of issues surrounding injustice in the criminal justice system, specifically the issues starting from when people are stopped on the street by a police officer to the moment they have exhausted their appeals or are sentenced to death by the government. This includes wrongful conviction (for instance, mistaken eyewitness identifications, faulty forensic science, and coerced confessions), unequal administration of the death penalty, and sentencing reform. We will work with fellow members to bring awareness of these issues to campus and to other communities. We will advocate for change through speaker events, meetings with key playmakers, and policy recommendations. The Harvard College Project for Justice identifies as a government, politics, and activist group.
