BENEFITING: FUSION PARTNERSHIPS INC
The Maryland Restorative Justice Initiative’s mission is to advocate for humane and sensible criminal justice policies in Maryland. Today we address the need for MRJI to grow and expand. We have been fortunate to have received grant funding from the Open Society Foundation over the past five years and have raised nearly $15,000 in additional funding as well. Open Society has offered to match what we are able to raise by the end of 2014. Our goal is to raise $6,300 by December 30, 2014.
MRJI seeks to support and advocate for policy reform that will remove the Governor from the Parole process for those serving parole eligible life sentences. It also hopes to provide education and support for the release for those who were juveniles when they committed the crime or were sentenced under the felony murder law who were not the guilty of the actual crime.
