Justice Advocacy Project

The Stanford Justice Advocacy Project (formerly the Three Strikes Project) represents individuals serving unjust prison sentences for minor crimes, assists prisoners successfully reentering their communities, and advocates for fairer and more effective criminal justice policies in California and across the country. The Project is staffed by Stanford Law students and supervising attorneys and works in coordination with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund on numerous projects, including the enactment and implementation successful ballot measures reforming California’s criminal sentencing laws, the Three Strikes Reform Act of 2012 (Proposition 36) and the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act of 2014 (Proposition 47).
