While we can’t be together to enjoy the #justiceaidconcert in person this year, we’re delighted to bring you this very special custom performance to amplify JusticeAid’s 2021 focus on police accountability and community empowerment.

Multi-Grammy award-winning keyboardist Robert Glasper is one of the founders of a new sound that has changed the face of a genre—straddling the worlds of hip-hop, jazz, and Neo-soul. He will be performing with Terrace Martin, a multi-instrumentalist whose music production embodies everything from funk and jazz to classical and soul; Ben Williams on bass; Justin Tyson on drums; Jahi Lake (DJ Jahi Sundance) on turntables; and special guest trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah.

We’re thrilled to invite you to this special free concert.  Register to get a reminder. Spread the word to family and friends, and let’s make this an evening to remember.
Right now every dollar you give will be matched by the JusticeAid Board to support the PACE program (Police Accountability/Community Empowerment) of JusticeAid’s 2021 grantee partner, Neighborhood Defender Service.

The PACE (Police Accountability/Community Empowerment) Program is founded by Neighborhood Defender Service (NDS), a national public defender office with three decades of service. NDS pioneered holistic public defense in 1990 to provide high-quality, comprehensive social and legal services to those who otherwise could not afford them. Thirty years later, NDS’ PACE Program aims to disrupt and dismantle the structural impediments in our legal system that continue to oppress its clients, their families, and communities. PACE reckons with police impunity, and works to reduce over-policing and build community power and wealth. It helps 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.

JusticeAid leverages the community-building power of art and music to transform awareness into action in the fight against injustice. Each year we identify and raise funds for justice causes by hosting music, arts and educational events. Since 2013 JusticeAid has raised over 1 million dollars for justice heroes: nonprofits that are ending mass incarceration, addressing the criminalization of poverty and inhumane immigration policies, and protecting civil rights for all.

In 2021, JusticeAid’s focus is police accountability and community empowerment. Through October 2021, 100% of your donation will support the expansion of NDS PACE, the Police Accountability/Community Empowerment program of Neighborhood Defender Service.

JusticeAid supporters share a passion for justice and a love for the arts. Learn about police accountability, persuade someone of its importance, and let’s rally together to make the world a better place.
