JusticeAid leverages the community-building power of art and music to transform awareness into action in the fight against injustice. We organize arts events and public forums to educate people about key civil rights challenges, and we raise funds to support key organizations addressing these issues. JusticeAid advances its efforts by leveraging our Board of Directors’ diverse lived experiences of race, sex, religion, age, and sexual orientation, among others.
