Greenlee, Tucson Convention Center

The Innovation for Justice (i4J) Program exposes students to the justice gap, engages students in thinking critically about the power of technology and innovation to close that gap, and empowers students to be disruptive problem-solvers. Students work across disciplines and with government, private and community partners, implementing design thinking and systems thinking to create new models of legal empowerment. Over 200 community members have engaged with the program since it launched in August 2018.

Join us! Find out what we’ve been working on, interact with some of our ongoing projects, and learn how you can take solution-oriented action regarding urgent social issues in our community, including human trafficking, domestic violence, and eviction.
