The Preamble of our Constitution sets forth aspirations that our Founding Generation foresaw were necessary for the establishment of a free, just, and prosperous nation. In fact, the concept of “justice” was foremost on their minds: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice….”
Yet this concept of “justice” is complicated--it must balance individual liberty and fairness with public safety and victim restoration. Clause 40 Foundation is a nonpartisan tax exempt 501(c)(3) founded on the belief that the promise of justice in the Preamble is yet unfilled in our modern society and that failure is preventing the advancement of this country and all its people.
We believe that the erosion of procedural due process rights is one cornerstone of the problem and therefore our mission is to re-balance the nation’s criminal justice framework by preserving the due process rights guaranteed in the Constitution through public education, events, research, litigation, and advocacy.
While other voices are shouting at each other across a void of misunderstandings and mistrust, we work to bridge the divide--partnering with all communities to move America #TowardJustice.
