The Poor and Minority Justice Association was founded in 2010, by Pastor Clayton Cowart. Based in Winter Haven, Florida, PMJA is comprised of citizens from various ethnic and racial backgrounds and serves communities throughout Florida and Georgia.

“Defending the innocent, supporting the weak and encouraging the strong” is more than a tagline; it’s our mission. PMJA provides encouragement, training and leadership in poor and minority communities, which are disproportionately affected by social, political and economic injustice.

In poor and minority communities throughout Florida and Georgia there has long been a history of social and economic injustice. Therefore, PMJA seeks to erase inequality and injustice through non-violent direct action, reminiscent of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s. PMJA campaigns against police brutality, false charges, false arrests. PMJA also promotes racial, social, and economic justice in poor and minority communities thought Florida and Georgia.

PMJA is a non-profit organization which offers its services without regard to race, religion, national origin or social standing.
