Distributing and Empowering Georgia Citizens’ Access to Legal and Educational Justice Calloway CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM SUMMIT THEME: “Promoting Responsible Justice” & PRIVATE RECEPTION Honoring Nathan Deal, Esq. State of Georgia’s 82nd Governor; Criminal Justice Reformist ABOUT THE D.E.A.L. PROJECT The D.E.A.L. Project, Inc. is created to honor and continue the legacy of social justice, access to justice, and fair justice fashioned into law via the state legislature through the vision of Georgia’s 82nd Governor, John Nathan Deal, an attorney and former U.S. Congressman. It is a subsidiary of The King Association for Social Change, Inc. founded to address social ills of our communities. The vision of the D.E.A.L. Project is twofold. The most immediate goal is to develop self-help law libraries/centers in rural Georgia courthouses, staffed with effective and willing staff that loves the people and respect the law. Equally important, the Project looks to tackle legal illiteracy by educating the community, through social media, town hall meetings, pro bono legal aid, etc. MISSION Improving access to justice by making courts more user-friendly through free legal aid/advice, legal assistance, legal education, and self-help services. HISTORY Named in honor of Georgia’s 82nd Governor, Nathan Deal has led Georgia to become the No. 1 state in the nation for business and justice reform. The DEAL Project is founded in April 2019 to ensure the promise of justice reform by creating self-help centers, expungement clinics, and townhall meetings to educate the community on legal issues. PURPOSE One of the biggest challenges in the court system is the increasing number of self-represented litigants. As the number of self-represented litigants in civil cases continues to grow, courts are responding by improving access to justice and making courts more user-friendly. Innovations include: NEEDS ACCESSMENT Based on the Self-Help Toolkit| Georgia Legal Assistance: A Guide for Judges produced by the Judicial Council/Administrative Offices of the Courts Committee on Access to Justice in February 2019, the only rural self-help centers for pro-se defendants/plaintiffs are in Savannah, GA/Chatham County and in the Appalachian Judicial Circuit (north Georgia).

New research shows that nearly one in two adults in America — approximately 113 million people — has an immediate family member who is currently or formerly incarcerated. This Summit will address injustice at every stage – from policing and pretrial detention to sentencing and incarceration to reentry; and also from decarceration through the limited use of prisons and jails and the creation of meaningful pathways to redemption and rehabilitation. Bringing fairness and dignity to our legal system is one of the most profound civil and human rights issues of this century. The Summit will create a forum for the entire community of Atlanta and Metro-Atlanta to educate the public about such a complex widespread issue alongside philanthropists, activists and politicians to reshape the current system. There are two, one hour and half long panels with a question and answer period from the audience. The First panel is made up of law professors, attorneys, judges, district attorneys, criminal justice reform activists and advocates, supreme court and court of appeals justices, and police chiefs. The Second Panel is a faith-based panel made up of ministers, pastors, social justice advocates, corporate individuals, civic leaders, volunteers, public officials, alumni and others who support the cause of Responsible Social justice.

BOX 184 TIFTON, GEORGIA 31793 EMAIL: THEKINGASSOCIATION@YAHOO.COM Greetings Sponsor, Mass incarceration, after all, is a thoroughly bipartisan project. Soon after he was elected governor, Nathan Deal made overhauling the state’s costly and famously tough criminal justice system a top priority. When Deal took office in 2011, Georgia led the nation in criminal supervision, with 1 in 13 people either locked up, on probation or on parole. The state was spending about $1.2 billion a year on its prison system. If nothing changed, two new adult prisons had to be built at a cost of $264 million. The two adult prisons have never been built due to Deal’s. With the $264 million never spent, we need to use our corporate dollars to invest in educating our communities through “accountability” initiatives that allow them to avoid jail time, stay sober, get treatment, get an education, and find/keep a job. Moreover, Georgia citizens will be given the opportunity to better get pro bono legal aid for civil issues, better understand the applicable laws in Georgia, and to gain a more user-friendly courthouse/courtroom through a law library and self-help centers. The Reform Summit and Dinner will be the premier fundraising and major social event focusing on raising public awareness on mass incarceration and illiteracy. Hosted by a diverse group of corporate sponsors, attorneys, judges, and local businesses, it will involve celebrities, dignitaries, civic leaders, volunteers, public officials, and former incarcerated individuals who support The D.E.A.L Project’s mission of investing in aggressive and methodical approaches to saved taxpayers a bundle in prison spending. Your financial support will be the end of Georgia’s addiction to incarceration and legal illiteracy in very meaningful ways to our community. Ambrose B.

I don’t think there are many people who would have a hard heart when confronted with those circumstances. To see people take advantage of a second chance, not only to redeem their lives, but to redeem and reclaim their children in many cases, and to be able to be taxpayers instead” Governor Nathan Deal (Atlanta Tribune Article, January 2019) “Financially solid individuals and large businesses can afford lawyers, but many mom and pop grocery stores, family farms and working class families struggle mightily to pay for legal services. This leads to too many Georgians having to represent themselves in court……….. The man in the nursing home who wants to leave what little he owns to his only child, should be able to find affordable legal help to write a simple will that complies with the law.” Chief Justice Harris Hines (2017, State of the Judiciary) Criminal Justice Reform Summit and Gala SPONSORHIP PAYMENT FORM THE D.E.A.L.
