Emergent Justice is a Black women led organization which prioritizes empowerment and continual base building. An emphasis is placed on hiring directly impacted BIPOC people who can use their life experience and strengths to change the narrative and create positive change. We were founded by an experienced team of community organizers who together represent a broad range of backgrounds and expertise in social justice, media, education, and human development.
Our mission is to empower communities to unapologetically fight to dismantle all systems of injustice throughout Michigan. We use a community organizing approach to empower justice impacted multi-generational BIPOC people, who are being traumatized by racial injustice, to create a culture of unity, hope and resilience.
