At The Community Justice Project, students serve as advocates, consultants, advisors, capacity-builders, strategic planners, policy analysts, and community organizers to help clients tackle complex, high priority projects across a wide variety of subject areas.
During the Fall 2013 semester, CJP students worked with:
- DC Jobs Council to expand "ban the box" legislation, which prohibits questions regarding criminal history on initial job applications, to private sector job applications in D.C.
- Casa Ruby, a multicultural community center for the District’s LGBT communities, to assist with its strategic growth and develop and expand its policy advocacy and legal services.
- SOME Inc., So Others Might Eat, to design and implement a District-wide advocacy strategy for increasing and improving resources for unaccompanied homeless individuals (adults without children).
