Racial Justice Project

Race continues to play a role in every aspect of American life, from housing to employment to policing to education.   Although racial exclusion has largely moved beyond facial legal barriers to access and participation, the events of the past year demonstrate that we have not yet moved beyond our ugly history of racial bias, segregation, and discrimination.  The Racial Justice Project is a legal advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the constitutional and civil rights of people who have been denied those rights on the basis of race and to increasing public awareness of racism and racial injustice in the areas of education, employment, political participation, economic inequality and criminal justice. The Racial Justice Project’s work includes impact litigation, appellate advocacy, legislative advocacy, and public education.
