About Denver Justice Project

History. Denver Justice Project formed in 2015 through a community-led effort to recall then Denver District Attorney (DA) Mitch Morrissey for his lack of prosecuting police officers who assaulted or murdered community members. While that effort did not result in recalling the DA, it was successful as it from it emerged a coalition determined to achieve meaningful lasting improvement for people’s lives by transforming the criminal legal system.

Mission. The Denver Justice Project (DJP) works with historically marginalized communities to address systemic racism by transforming law enforcement and the structure of the criminal justice system through intersectional movement building, direct action, advocacy, and collaborative education.

Denver Justice Project is honored to have been working to hold law enforcement accountable as we seek to transforming our "justice" system more broadly since 2014. We want to thank our amazing community for allowing us to serve and supporting us along the way.
But we have also reached a critical moment where we need more support from our community to ensure that we can keep doing this vital work. DJP has always been a small and scrappy group of volunteers, and as we seek to deepen and expand our work in 2019, we are asking our community to support us on this #CoGivesDay by donating what you can. You can give to us via our fiscal sponsor at www.bit.ly/Give2DJP, and thank you in advance
