Been arrested?

We can help.

The justice system is broken.  We’re here to fix it.

We match pro bono lawyers to those accused of crimes, provide connections to social services, help those reentering society, and train socially responsible defense attorneys.

The FLJC wants to get people out of jail and keep them out of the justice system.

WHAT WE DO

Legal Defense

We match defense attorneys with low-income men and women who have been arrested in South Florida.

Reentry

Those who have just been released from prison need help getting back on their feet. We provide training and connections to social services.

Social Services

Assistance applying for government programs, childcare, parenting classes, education, substance abuse treatment, job placement, and more.

Training

Classes and webinars on racial and social justice, sentencing disparities, reentry, and lowering recidivism rates.

Making an impact

“I couldn’t imagine having to share a public defender with everyone else.  My son and I felt confident today because of your help.  I can’t thank you enough for your guidance.”

– Nesha (Mother of a real FLJC client)
