Each year the Georgia Justice Project (GJP) hosts a back-to-school event for the children of their clients, providing new backpacks filled with all of the school supplies required by Atlanta Public Schools. This year the event will be held on July 14 and 325 children will be in attendance.
GJP has asked for help from the Cathedral to supply at least 10 filled backpacks for these children in need. Items needed include crayons, pencils, glue sticks, rulers, and more. For the full list, contact Lisa McNamara, lmcnamara@cathedralATL.org. If you can help with a completed backpack or a few items on the list the children and their families would be extremely grateful.
Georgia Justice Project strengthens our community by demonstrating a better way to represent and support individuals in the criminal justice system and reduce barriers to reentry. GJP promotes innovative change through direct legal representation, policy advocacy, education and coalition building.
