Honorary JAS Chair: Justice Sandra Day O'Connor

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is Justice at Stake's first Honorary Chair.

Why Fair Courts Matter

Why Fair Courts Matter

Fair, impartial courts protect the rights of every American. But across America, special interests are spending millions on elections and demanding that our courts answer to narrow, partisan agendas, not to the law.

Justice at Stake educates Americans about the crucial role of state and federal courts, defends judges from threats and intimidation, promotes diversity, and advocates reforms to keep campaign cash out of the courtroom. Our goal is fair, impartial justice for all. Learn more
