Hi. I am launching a fundraiser for the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice.
In order to undo the injustice which persists in our society, we must bypass neutral approaches. We need to fight for our fellow citizens boldly, passionately, and smartly. We shouldn’t want to live in a nation or state where millions of people are drowning in an everlasting current of inequity.
The New Jersey Institute for Social Justice focuses on tackling structural inequality to create just, vibrant, and healthy communities in our state. Their mission is for every New Jersey resident affected by this inequality to realize and achieve their full potential. By implementing evidence-driven programs, the Institute works to ensure that residents of New Jersey’s urban communities have access to meaningful employment opportunities, promotes rehabilitative community-oriented alternatives to incarceration for youth, reshapes the state’s criminal justice policy to assure equal access to justice, and seeks to makes true on the promise of democracy for people of color across New Jersey by working to expand access to polls.
If you are from NJ (or anywhere else) and want to make a difference in the lives of fellow Americans and our collective society, please consider donating to NJISJ. Hopefully we can raise $1000 by the end of July.
These are painful times for our nation. Thankfully, they say the arc of the moral universe bends towards justice. But let’s not leave anything up to chance. The time to act is now.
