Welcome to the Justice Reform Coalition!!!!

Established in 2005, the JRC has been a staunch crusader for the reform of the whole justice system. Working with victims of the system to get them justice in their individual cases, challenging the courts and their officials, standing up to law enforcement, helping citizens to hold officials accountable, working with other progressive organizations, and the training and support of community advocates, has made our past thirteen years full. This has made us stronger, more capable and more focussed on our goal of equal rights and justice for all.

We are proud of our advocates and activists and the work they do together. Because that is the JRC. Using our resources, learning experience, and strength, to be able to stand up and assert our rights together for ourselves and our communities.

Our site, like our organization, is always updating.We are adding content regularly. So keep checking back regularly as there will be new features and news from the front that will make the site more a part of our mission to bring "EQUAL RIGHTS AND JUSTICE FOR ALL".

JRC NEWS

We decided we needed to start putting out the information we get to the public regularly and let people know what we are doing. We also needed a voice to talk about the injustice we see, and those who perpetrate it.

In it you will find the writings, thoughts, and opinions of the activists and advocates of the JRC and our collaborators. You will also find action updates on current and future projects, activities, and cases of the JRC, as well as our research on various issues we advocate for. Check it out!!

ONGOING PROJECTS AND THINGS

________________________________________________________________________________________________

EXPOSE CPS & FAMILY COURT CORRUPTION!!! asam

We are calling for massive reform of CPS or for them to voluntarily close down pending an investigation into their patterns and practices.

The coalition is addressing the egregious actions habitually taken by CPS and the Family Courts for years in taking children from their families without merit and justification, the abuse of children while in the hands of CPS, the murder of numerous children due to CPS failure of oversight and accountability, and much more.

The Justice Reform Coalition’s Executive Director, Rev. Ashiya Odeye’ says: “For far too long, CPS has terrorized numerous families with their kidnapping of children, lying, cheating, false claims of abuse, manufacturing false accusatory documents claiming parental harm towards a child, losing and dis allowing factual documents, accusing parents of negligence and harm towards their children, holding secret collusive meetings with officials prior to an accused parent’s hearing in court, and more.  There is no transparency, no oversight and no accountability throughout this process", said Rev. Odeye’.  "Families and children are at the mercy of these child abusive groups.  CPS was supposed to help families and children, not destroy them. Trafficking in our children for profit and control.”

OUR PLATFORM

We have put together a platform with other advocates and organizations to begin to address community concerns and the lack of any oversite in this matter. Read It Here

WORKSHOPS OFFERED BY THE JRC

JRC workshops are free to members. It may from time to time require putting in for supplies to help make the class happen, but that is very nominal. For people and organizations outside of the JRC we have to ask a donation for the cause. We are a grassroots organization and we really understand how hard times are, but we run on donations and the more we get the more we can do. How much you donate is up to you.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

courtwatchCourt Watch - In this workshop you'll learn what court - watching is about. You'll learn how to  do the court watch forms, what to look and listen for. You'll learn how to do an affidavit based on your form. Lastly you'll learn how to  note take without the forms. There is field work involved with this workshop in order to be certified as a court watcher. This workshop is open to all and is mandatory for people who want to do court watching. Court watching is one of the most important things we do. It makes sure that there is a third party eye watching the proceedings especially since court recorders are scarce in California Superior Courts. It's easy to do and has immediate impact.

How To Defend Yourself In Pro SE -

This is the essence of the JRC. Learning to defend yourself in court. It is broken up into several parts.

  2. Preparing yourself mentally
  3. Knowing your rights as a Pro Se litigant.
  4. Forms, documents, and pleadings
  5. Researching for your case
  6. Documenting your case
  7. FIling and Service

This workshop is open to all, and is reccommended for JRC Members and everyone we end up helping, and required for all JRC Advocates. This workshop is free to our members. Donations are accepted from all others. This is such a crucial workshop for the "pro se" movement. It will empower you to stand up and maintain yourself in court and help demystify the process. Because more and more people are being forced to handle their own cases we knew we had to offer this workshop and support this movement.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS - This workshop is a collaboration with the Sac National Lawyer's Guild. An informed public is a powerful public and understanding your rights is the first step in attaining that power in this system. We at the JRC feel it is the obligation of every citizen to know their rights and how to excercise them. To maintain control of our system it is absolutely neccessary.

 

______________________________________________________________________________________________

THE JURY AS OVERSIGHT - JUROR'S RIGHTS - The founders of this country realized from experience how corrupt and controlling the legal system topped by judges could become if allowed to go unchallenged. So, they wrote in the Jury as the final authority in the legal system. A group of regular citizens whose job is to make the final decision. It was also felt that decision needed to be unbiased based on facts and law, appropriate, fair, and above all unanimous. The Jury was given powers that over the years has been usurped by judges in this 90% plea based system we are dealing with today. But those powers are still on the books. Learn what they are and how they work in this important workshop.
