Informed Georgians for Justice
Informed Georgians for Justice is a non-partisan volunteer organization of concerned citizens. The organization aims to educate the voting public about the 2020 candidates for sheriff, district attorney and solicitor in all 159 counties in the state. Many voters do not realize the impact these elected officials have on criminal justice issues. IGJ informs citizens about the importance of voting in these elections.
Currently, IGJ is conducting a voter education project sponsored by the Georgia NAACP. IGJ is gathering information through a candidate questionnaire containing approximately 35 yes/no questions regarding specific criminal justice issues. The questions presented were determined with input from numerous organizations with diverse perspectives. The responses will be utilized by the Georgia NAACP, IGJ and many other organizations to educate voters about the policy positions of the Sheriff, District Attorney and Solicitor candidates on their ballot.
