Jazzed for Justice 2023

Home of Ed & Judy Garland


Gideon's Promise is dedicated to providing training, mentorship, and a community of support for zealous, client-centered public defenders at every stage of their career. For 16 years, Gideon’s Promise has worked tirelessly to transform the criminal legal system. Sadly, their critical work is far from done. We believe that the promise to help end mass incarceration is a promise worth keeping.

Protecting This Promise

You don't have to be a public defender to protect the promise of zealous counsel for all. Your monthly contribution--no matter the amount--will directly impact the fate of a defendant who didn't know they needed you.
