Art + Justice2024-06-18T21:51:36-04:00

JusticeAid believes in justice and the power of art to bring us together in the fight for a more equitable nation and world. This year, in parallel with our fundraising for Black Voters Matter, we are celebrating the talents of Black painters, musical artists, photographers, poets, and others. Their work bears witness to the pain of the struggle for justice while conjuring beauty and dignity.
