Become a JC member
What is a JC member
Justice Committee members are people of color impacted by police and state violence that believe in the organizations mission and vision, and do what they can to make our collective vision of the world a reality. JC members believe in making the impossible possible using any and all tactics at our disposal. There are a variety of roles members can choose to play in the organization including leadership, educational, and support roles. JC members identify the organizations priorities, programs, and strategies. We would not exist or be able to do the work we do without the support and leadership of members.
All Justice Committee members agree to attend at least one organizational meeting, event, action or activity a month.

The JC is a prime example of member driven organizing. They have been an asset to the Latino community in New York for many years. As a member I am proud to be part of the overall social justice movement, but more specifically working closely alongside an organization that holds a legacy of social justice work. The JC has been a phenomenal guide to building a personal voice as a New Yorker and Latino against oppressive institutions.
