A culture of punishment runs rampant in our country. From overcrowded prisons to police brutality to harsh sentencing, we collectively believe punishment will change behavior, but we’ve been proven wrong time and time again. It’s time for a new approach.
The Fair Fight Initiative (FFI) is a 501(c)(3) organization that advocates for equal treatment under the law, confronts systemic injustice, and helps victims challenge abusers of power in court.
Mission: Through litigation and community advocacy, Fair Fight Initiative exposes mistreatment in the law enforcement system and works to end mass incarceration.
The True Victims
FFI takes on important and influential cases to expose violations of freedom and equality – often cases that no other lawyer will take because they can’t afford to. Sadly, the financial incentives for defending the very people who abuse their power far outweigh the incentives for pursuing true justice. Law enforcement, backed by powerful unions, and America’s prison system, represented by aggressive insurance companies and highly paid lawyers, perpetuate a system of oppression by making it nearly impossible, financially, to pursue litigation against them, dragging cases out with endless motions, discovery requests, and needless litigation.
A Fully-Funded Legal Support System
Through fundraising and public support, FFI raises money to support victims in seeking justice, leveling the playing field. FFI supports these victims when they most need a strong fighter in their corner.
FFI was founded by lawyers with decades of experience in civil rights litigation and social justice advocacy. Meet our team below:
