Our Goals

 
  • To work with, and where necessary, lobby government to create an appropriately balanced but fair judicial system with a strong focus on rehabilitation and re-integration. We are distinguished from other political lobby groups as TJF understands that at some stage every prisoner will be released back into society; it is our aim to ensure the offender is adequately rehabilitated and ready for release back into the community.
     
  • To oppose inappropriate sentencing, preserving a strong focus of fairness for victims and establish appropriate rehabilitation.
     
  • To oppose the Three Strikes law as we believe this legislation to be unbalanced and ineffective. TJF believes the Courts have the tools to enforce appropriate and rational prison sentences, however our judges aren't using these tools as the government intended. TJF aim to change this and we believe this legislation is not needed.
