About JUSTGeorgia

More than a decade ago, the JUSTGeorgia Coalition's lead partners, Georgia AppleseedThe Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic of the Emory University School of Law, Interfaith Children's Movementand Voices for Georgia's Children, came together with a goal of updating the long-outdated Georgia juvenile code. 
When Governor Deal signed the juvenile code into law in May 2013, hundreds of individuals  and organizations shared in the victory of a modernized and more compassionate juvenile code. While the new code marked a huge milestone for JUSTGeorgia and our partners, the work of the coalition is not done. 
Since then, JUSTGeorgia has continued to focus its efforts on statewide legislative initiatives through a combination of research, lobbying, policy development, and key stakeholder engagement to advance social and juvenile justice in Georgia
