Just Democracy "is made up of a network of law students, organized in chapters based at law schools all over the country. On Election Day, November 2, 2004, almost 2000 trained JD volunteers were present at local polling places to act as resources for voters and poll workers. These efforts have continued as chapters across the country have worked recent local elections and are gearing up for November 2006.

"Just Democracy’s chapters bring the resources of law schools, students and faculties to bear in their own communities to strengthen American democracy. Along the way, Just Democracy encourages civic and community engagement among its law student volunteers, and instills a sense of responsibility in the next generation of law school graduates for stewardship of the democratic process.

"Just Democracy was founded by two Harvard Law students, Becca O'Brien and Micah May, in January, 2004, as an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status." [1]
