Our Mission

FPJ is an investigation office and resource center. We build narratives to challenge the death penalty and advocate for the value of human life. We collaborate with families and communities impacted by the judicial system to facilitate safety, growth, and resilience.

FPJ was founded in 2006 by Kendra Ing, Scarlet Nerad, Julie Lagarde, and Laura Rogers as a death penalty defense investigation office and community resource center. After years of working on death penalty cases, FPJ's founders saw a need to provide services in communities adversely affected by death penalty prosecutions.

Nearly a decade and a half later, FPJ continues to serve clients, their families, and capital defense teams.
