Update July 20, 2020: EJS Supports Transforming Public Safety

EJS is a national civil rights legal organization working to fully restore the constitutional protections of the Fourteenth Amendment by replacing the Intent Standard with a disparate impact standard that addresses contemporary forms of racism.

As heirs of the innovative legal and political strategists of Brown v. Board of Education, we collaborate with an array of social scientists and legal scholars to help us put forth legal arguments regarding implicit bias and structural racism. Our litigation efforts are supplemented by alliance building, cross-disciplinary convenings, and strategic public communications.

EJS conducts advocacy in the following program areas (click on the links to learn more):
