The National Social Justice Alliance (NSJA) was created to bring together prosecutors across the nation in a common effort to fix the broken American criminal justice system. NSJA believes prosecutors are the answer. Prosecutors are the gatekeepers of our local justice systems, and are responsible for holding everyone, including police officers, responsible for the crimes they commit. The 2020 police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and the aftermath of protests for equality, justice and calls for police reform highlight the need for prosecutors to step up. Together, the gatekeepers of the system can finally end police brutality and ensure that equality and justice are the standard for everyone.
Cabbage Patch Foundation Inc. founded by former NFL standout Bob L. Whitfield, is serving as the Fiscal Sponsor for NSJA while NSJA is waiting to be recognized as tax-exempt by the IRS. Fiscal sponsorships are often used by newly formed nonprofits that need to raise money during the start-up phase, before they are recognized as tax-exempt by the IRS. Using a fiscal sponsor enables an organization that does not itself qualify as tax-exempt to attract funding for its operations that will — through the fiscal sponsor — be tax-deductible to donors.
