Emergent Justice

Storytellers of the Movement


Emergent Justice is a nonprofit social justice organization dedicated to challenging injustice by empowering communities to address issues that affect their lives. We are narrative and communications strategists, artists, and community organizers dedicated to advancing social justice and equity.

We believe that our collective investments in housing, education, health, transportation, food security, and jobs will fail if we do not also proactively work to divest this nation’s resources from criminalization. Therefore, we elevate stories of those directly impacted by mass incarceration

As Storytellers of the Movement, our hope is to build capacity around racial justice storytelling in a way that drives sustainable change.
