As a people of God, we are called to work for justice, to speak for the voiceless, to show mercy and kindness to those who suffer. Part of the mission at Rakstar Designs is to be that light in the darkness. Here are a few ways you can join us in the work of justice and mercy.
Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer and bestselling author of Just Mercy, The Equal Justice Initiative is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons. We challenge the death penalty and excessive punishment and we provide re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people.
EJI works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment.
