Justice Is Everyone's Business

Seeking to Restore Integrity and
Public Trust in Our Justice System

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
—Benjamin Franklin

Justice Is Everyone's Business supports the liberties, freedoms, and principles articulated in the U.S. Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the State of Oregon.  We support justice based on truth, reconciliation, and restoration rather than punishment and vindictiveness.
