Justice For Vets is a nonprofit based in Virginia, and is a division of the National Association of Drug Court Professionals. They are dedicated to transforming the way in which the justice system interacts with veterans. They strive to ensure that veterans treatment courts are within reach of all veterans in need, and they provide training and technical assistance so that communities can serve veterans suffering from mental health disorders, trauma, and substance use. Through their work, they keep veterans out of jail and prison. They have helped to establish over 200 veterans treatment courts, trained over 3,000 court staff, and conducted 16 volunteer veteran mentor boot camp trainings for 1,000 veteran mentors from across 30 states.

“JusticeAid is the hardest working, most generous, and committed fundraising partner I’ve had the privilege of working with in my 20 years of non-profit work. In one night, our JusticeAid-hosted concert raised more money and public awareness than a year of intensive activity. I feel blessed to have been selected by JusticeAid to further our work with veterans and I urge any cause to jump at the opportunity to join forces with them.”

West Huddleston, CEO, National Association of Drug Court Professionals

To raise awareness of this important cause, JusticeAid hosted An Evening with Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and Shemekia Copeland at the Warner Theatre on Sunday, September 14th in Washington, D.C.
