The Justice Reform Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping those impacted by the broken U.S. criminal justice system.
Founded by successful businessman and
serial entrepreneur Justin Magnuson – after he himself was wrongly accused of a crime he didn’t
commit – the Justice Reform Foundation focuses on justice reforms, bail reform, and education for reintroduction into society by teaching job skills and entrepreneurship.
The criminal justice system is destroying innocent lives and hurting families. The Justice Reform Foundation works to reform the criminal justice system and help those who suffered from it.
Our mission is to educate the public about injustices within the U.S. criminal justice system and work to abolish unfair practices that cause the accused – particularly minorities and people of color – irreversible harm even if found innocent or never formally charged with a crime.
The Justice Reform Foundation also strives to help people attempting to transition back into civilian life after getting entangled in the justice system, whether rightly or wrongly accused.
As part of its advocacy efforts, the Justice Reform Foundation pursues the following goals:
Educate the public about unjust aspects of the criminal justice system
o Unlawful detainment
o Need for bail reform
o Prosecutorial misconduct
o Abuse in the utilization of confidential informants
o Disparate treatment among classes of citizens
Decriminalize marijuana offenses and record expungement for all marijuana crimes and other low-level offenses
Assist and mentor recently released convicts in reintegrating back to society with job and business skill set training
Advocate via public affairs and through public policy lobbying efforts to advance justice reform throughout society
