Introducing: Community Veteran Justice Project

Our mission is to provide free assistance to veterans who are navigating pending criminal cases

The Community Veteran Justice Project (CVJP) is dedicated to ensuring current and former military service members receive the information, support, and services they need to use California’s Veteran Statutes to improve their lives.​

CVJP provides specific services, policy advocacy, and community education to assist justice-involved service members/veterans with obtaining alternative sentencing for some felonies, and diversion for misdemeanor cases. This can result in treatment rather than incarceration, some cases being dismissed, and records being sealed.
