EJI was founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, a widely renowned public interest lawyer who has been recognized for his impactful work defending historically marginalized groups and championing criminal justice reform. Since its founding, EJI has expanded to focus on four key issues: racial justice, children in prison, mass incarceration, and the death penalty.

Additionally, EJI has been instrumental in efforts to reform the way in which underage children are treated and prosecuted within the criminal justice system.
