Why Support the Foundation for Criminal Justice:
The NACDL Foundation for Criminal Justice (NFCJ) envisions a society where all individuals receive fair, rational, and humane treatment within the criminal justice system. With the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the NFCJ serves as a leader, alongside diverse coalitions, in identifying and reforming flaws and inequities in the criminal justice system, and redressing systemic racism, and ensuring that its members and others in the criminal defense bar are fully equipped to serve all accused persons at the highest level.
For 60 years, NACDL has been the bedrock of the criminal defense bar. With support from the NFCJ, NACDL continues to press for real criminal justice reform in policy and in the courts, every day, by helping lawyers challenge government abuses of power.
