Syracuse University College of Law professors Janis McDonald and Paula Johnson co-founded the Cold Case Justice Initiative (CCJI) to seek justice for racially motivated murders during the Civil Rights era. Founded in response to an unresolved 1964 murder in Louisiana, CCJI’s research led to action by the FBI and US Attorney General for a full case review. CCJI not only focuses vigilant attention on these long unresolved, racially motivated killings of the past, but also on issues of racial justice today, including deaths resulting from policy brutality against people of color.
