About Florida Justice Center

Our Mission:
To empower individuals by providing legal support, community education, and removing barriers to success caused by the criminal justice system.

What We Do:
We provide free legal services to low-income people with histories of criminal justice involvement in Florida. Some of these offerings include clemency (rights restoration), sealing and expungement of arrest records, mugshot removal from the internet, DNA database removal, and probation assistance. We currently assist over 5,000 client per year.

Who We Are:
Florida Justice Center (FLJC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit legal aid organization that provides free and low-cost services to low-income people in Florida to help them overcome barriers caused by criminal legal system involvement.

We were founded, and are led, by someone with lived experience in the criminal legal system and board members who are either attorneys or people personally impacted by the system themself or through a loved one.

The organization was started to address racial and socioeconomic disparities in the criminal legal system and to help build equity for marginalized and disproportionately affected groups.

Florida Justice Center serves the entire state of Florida and has offices in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

Case Management Intern

January 2021 - May 2021 Oakland Park, FL
“As a Case Management Intern, I gained hands-on experience of what it takes to manage clients' concerns and connect them to community resources. Through the reentry program, I've gained a lot of technical experience and systemic knowledge that has guided me in my career development. I really liked how Florida Justice Center is aware of how events on the local, state, and national level would affect the organization's mission and processes. A passion to help the local community and justice-involved adults is a must in this internship. ”
