Love is a universal emotion. Yet for many, to love themselves and their lovers is not easy. This Valentine’s Day, and throughout this year, JusticeAid is proud to raise awareness and funds for our 2022 grantee partner,  SMYAL. Thanks to SMYAL’s in-person and virtual programs, LGBTQ youth not only have a safe and welcoming place to be who they are, but are provided with the tools, resources, and support to thrive and become leaders in their communities as they grow into adulthood.

From all of us at JusticeAid, we wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day and the freedom to love whoever you are and whomever your heart desires.

The song we’re sharing today is “Beautiful” by singer-songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello, a proud bisexual African American woman with ten Grammy Award nominations.

Thanks for the love! With heartfelt thanks to all the donors who directed a year-end contribution to support JusticeAid.

JusticeAid believes in the power of art and music to transform awareness into action in the fight against injustice. All donations this year until the end of October will support JusticeAid’s 2022 Grantee Partner, SMYAL (Supporting and Mentoring Youth Advocates and Leaders).

We’re excited and hope you are too! Help us spread the word. We’ve created sample social media posts that you can use on your own social media to let your friends know you are proud that JusticeAid is focusing on LGBTQ Rights this year. Join our social media campaign by using #smyal4justice. Thank you!

We’re excited to share that JusticeAid has earned a 2022 Platinum Seal of Transparency with Candid!

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 granted more than 1.5 million dollars to nonprofits working to ensure access to justice for the disenfranchised and marginalized. Our grantee partners are fighting racist voter suppression and racist policing, working to end mass incarceration and inhumane immigration practices, ensuring access to legal services, and addressing the criminalization and hatred of others.
