Justice Department to Award $57 Million Toward Reforms

The funding will support criminal justice reform and advance racial equity within the justice system.

The Justice Department recently announced that nearly $57 million will be awarded in support of justice reforms and racial equity in the criminal justice system. The grant will further the department’s goal to “institute more effective and equitable criminal justice policies and practices“ and will aid efforts at the state, territory, local, and Tribal levels.

“Equal justice is not a self-executing proposition — it takes work to make it real — and it will take a collective commitment from all of us at the federal, state, and local levels to bring that ideal to life,” said Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta. “These investments make good on a pledge by the Justice Department to promote public safety and realize the promise of a just society that recognizes the dignity and humanity of everyone.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Attorney General Garland to seek God’s direction as he leads the Justice Department.
  • For Associate Attorney General Gupta as supports the department’s criminal justice system reforms.
