In 2021, our focus is on racism in policing. Join us in learning how our grantee partner, NDS PACE, will address police impunity and build community power.

To start our journey…

Let’s check in with a respected Harvard historian who offers a balanced view about the origins of policing. Jill Lepore’s July 13, 2020 article in The New Yorker, The Invention of the Police, is a fast read. Or you can listen to the audio version from the link in the article. It may fundamentally change the way you think of policing.

In the coming months we’ll be sharing resources with you that we’ll post on JusticeAid’s resource page on police accountability and community empowerment.

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 percent of your donation will support the expansion of NDS PACE, the Police Accountability/Community Empowerment program of Neighborhood Defender Service.
