Who we are
turning pain into purpose
Grant Me Justice would not exist had there not been a life lost to murder. After losing her daughter to murder, tackling the criminal justice system alone, and leaving feeling helpless and defeated, Felecia Marshall, our founder, vowed to do something. She vowed to tell her daughter's story and give that voice to other victims she never had.
The name, Grant Me Justice, was taken from Luke 18:1-8, where the widow goes before the unjust judge persistently seeking justice. After three years of appearing before judges seeking justice for her daughter's murder and feeling raped by a system that failed her, she walked away with a new perspective and a purpose. The perspective that the unjust judge cannot grant justice because he needs justice too, and our only hope for true justice is in Christ Jesus. A purpose--Grant Me Justice.
