The purpose of the Institute for Black Justice (IBJ) is to relentlessly pursue equity and justice for all.
The IBJ's mission is three-fold:
BIPOC FAMILY ADVOCACY
The IBJ supports Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) families by providing family advocacy services that improve their ability to obtain and sustain the resources and support they need to thrive.
SOCIAL JUSTICE ORGANIZATIONAL CONSULTING
The IBJ provides educational and consulting resources to organizations to remove systemic and institutional barriers to equity, and to improve overall service delivery to BIPOC families.
BLACK ROBE PODCAST
The purpose of the Black Robe podcast is to inspire community engagement in creating a more equitable and fair justice system. The topics target urban young adults 18-35.
CRYSTAL STAIR STORIES
The IBJ amplifies the stories and lived experience of BIPOC families who are impacted by instances of injustice, inequity, and incarceration. Crystal Stair Stories put a human voice and face to the cold and calculated data and statistics that policymakers rely upon for resource allocation.
