"The Albert Cobarrubias Justice Project (ACJP) — comprised of a network of families, organizers, and advocates — is a community organizing model aimed at equipping impacted communities with the tools and information needed to meaningfully impact their local criminal justice system. We call the approach, "participator defense." The principal means of accomplishing this goal is by bringing a community organizing ethic to the court process; encouraging the active engagement of families and communities in the defense of a loved one who has had contact with the criminal justice system; holding the public agencies that make up the criminal justice system accountable; and bringing a community presence to what is usually an isolating court process."
ACJP offers trainings to organizations, including faith-based institutions.
