Discovering Justice is a nonprofit leader in civic education located inside the Moakley U.S. Courthouse in Boston, Massachusetts. Our mission is to prepare young people to value the justice system, realize the power of their own voices, and embrace civic responsibility by connecting courtrooms and classrooms.
We offer innovative in-school curriculum, afterschool mock trial and mock appellate programs, and courthouse field trips that teach elementary and middle school students about the justice system, the role of law in a democratic society, and the fundamental importance of good citizenship. We concentrate our efforts where the need and opportunity for impact are greatest: in Boston and in Gateway Cities. In the 2015-2016 school year, more than 22,000 students from Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, Chelsea, Lawrence, Lowell, Malden, Milton, New Bedford, Quincy, Revere, Salem, Somerville, Springfield, Watertown, Worcester, and other Massachusetts cities participated in our programs.
