Restore Justice Illinois (RJI) is a civic organization founded to mitigate the human and fiscal impact of the extreme sentencing laws of the 1980s and 1990s, particularly where they have impacted children.
Our first priority is ending the practice of sentencing children to “life without parole” in Illinois by helping the Illinois General Assembly make good policy based on principled legal analysis, best practices in other states, guidance from the US Supreme Court, and international law.
We’re a 501 (c) 4 organization that utilizes its resources to engage in direct legislative advocacy at the state level.
Our “sister” organization, Restore Justice Foundation, conducts outreach, engages in research, provides advocacy training, and supports partnerships with other criminal justice reform efforts.
