Our Mission

To create a just and peaceful world. To this end, we work on the interconnected issues of economic and racial justice, peace, and human rights through the arts, education, training, non-violent activism, and community organizing. We are a non-partisan, service-oriented group of grassroots activists and advocates.

What Is Social Justice?

We define “social justice” as the belief that we each have inherent rights as human beings, and inequality is destructive to our goals as a democratic society. Social justice work is simply an effort to bring about dignity and equal treatment for all people—regardless of their race, gender, age, class, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, citizenship status, or level of education. A social justice advocate will work to combat biases and prejudices that exist in society, support and encourage people in their communities who lack a voice, and protest laws and regulations that deny any group access to fair resources and equal opportunity. Social justice requires action.

Social justice is not a Democratic or a Republican issue. Inequality, prejudice, and bias are human problems requiring human solutions. Everyone must work together to build a healthier, more equitable, society for our children and grandchildren.
