Digitizing and analyzing the performance of the U.S. criminal justice system

What they do

Measures for Justice (MFJ) is a national nonprofit founded in 2011 with an ambitious goal: to ensure that, with a few clicks of a mouse, anyone will be able to learn how well their local justice system is working, from arrest to post-conviction.

MFJ is in the process of building a platform that will display various criminal justice statistics that are searchable across multiple factors that include: race/ethnicity, sex, indigent status, age, and offense type. This level of transparency is unprecedented, and gives citizens across the country a rare look into how their criminal justice system is working—down to the county level.

How we're helping has given MFJ $1.5 million to expand its work throughout the country, with an initial focus on California. Googler volunteers are also advising on large scale data processing strategies for MFJ’s growing database.
