Mission Statement:

The mission of the Grand Jury Resistance Project (GJRP) was to coordinate powerful and effective resistance across the country to the epidemic of governmental political repression waged in the form of grand jury investigations, surveillance, political prosecutions, and collaboration between federal and local agencies to deny basic constitutional rights.

Purpose Statement

The GJRP existed in the mid-to-late 2000s as a coalition of lawyers, activists, and individuals targeted by government harassment. The efforts of the GJRP included: public education and training, organizing demonstrations, utilizing the media, consolidating current grand jury information, and the development of affirmative legal responses. In addition, the GJRP assisted in providing direct support and legal representation for those being politically targeted by grand juries. The GJRP sought to support people's resistance to intimidation and their continued action against exploitation and for social, environmental, and economic justice.
