One of the goals of GAJE is to provide members and other visitors to the GAJE website with news and information about GAJE activities and those of other organizations involved with Justice Education. Beginning in 2005, the Communication Committee produced an e-Newsletter intended to advertise upcoming events, conferences, activities, projects, job opportunities, publications etc. The Newsletter was circulated to all GAJE members and posted on this website for five years. The Newsletter was suspended at the end of 2009 and replaced by this section of the website. Past editions of the Newsletter are available at the GAJE e-Newsletter Archives page. You will find on this page revolving “Top Stories” and “GAJE Announcements”; for other news and announcements, go to:
