This year JusticeAid spotlights police accountability and community empowerment and the work that Neighborhood Defender Service is doing to reimagine public safety.
Every dollar from ticket sales and sponsorships for the Oct. 19 concert at the Lincoln Theatre will support the expansion of Neighborhood Defender Service’s Police Accountability/Community Empowerment (PACE) program.
The vision of PACE is to reckon with police impunity, reduce over-policing, and build community power and wealth. PACE will help individuals and communities alike secure their futures by addressing the police misconduct that marginalizes them, providing them with resources, and working alongside them to reshape policy in ways that reverberate across generations.
Music for justice—and an evening with social justice and music icon Mavis Staples—What could be better? We hope to see you at the JusticeAid Fall Concert on October 19th at the Lincoln Theatre, Washington, DC. Proof of vaccination and masks currently required.
