Judicial Reform

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

UAAMAC seeks to partner with those who are engaged in the struggle to create and administer a system of justice that recognizes the dignity and worth of all peoples. We will accomplish this by:

  • Fighting against societal practices and legislative policies that deny equal treatment to all our citizens in the streets, courts and other like venues in this country;
  • Supporting effective citizen review boards that monitor and restrain those entities that participate in the miscarriage of justice on all levels;
  • Proposing and encouraging legislative remedies that will address the disproportionate profiling, convictions and sentencing of persons of color;
  • Drawing on the best of our social justice traditions to develop and implement policies, practices and programs that will ensure and maintain a system of justice as an inalienable right for all persons;
  • Work to bring about the humane treatment of persons who are currently in the state’s penal system and encourage the development of strategies that remove barriers to their successful reentry into the community and world of work.
