Save the Date! Sunday, May 2nd, 4 and 8 PM ET
We are excited to announce JusticeAid’s virtual 2021 Spring Forum, Safety For Whom? Racist Policing in Communities and Schools, Sunday, May 2nd at 4 and 8 PM ET, in partnership with The Riverside Church of New York and introducing JusticeAid’s 2021 grantee partner, NDS PACE.
JusticeAid’s public forums gather together trusted voices to share insights and challenge us to think hard about the most pressing issues of our time. This event will be no different.
We hope you’ll join us and the Riverside community on YouTube for a compelling program about racist policing in communities and schools.
You can watch the #ClassACTForum, Racism and the Criminal System: Communities Fight for Justice, held on March 25th and hosted by JusticeAid strategic partner, ClassACT HR73.
Panelists’ recommended resources on racism and the criminal system are now posted such as:
- 10 Things We Know About Race and Policing in the US (Pew)
- Just Three Percent of Cases Go to Trial. A New Paper Unpacks How That Hurts Poor People of Color (Rick Jones, Neighborhood Defender Service)
MUSIC THAT MATTERS
Please enjoy this gospel song, Moses Smote the Water, from the Golden Gate Quartet. (Listen to our Songs of Protest archives.)
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.
