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.
