Jim Newberger on Civil Rights
Voices for Racial Justice self-description: "Since 1993, we have built a stronger movement for racial justice organizing in Minnesota and beyond. Our mission is to advance racial, cultural, social, and economic justice in Minnesota through organizer and leadership training, strategic convenings and campaigns, and research and policy tools. We took a visionary step many years ago, putting racial equity into the center of community organizing in Minnesota. As a result, we have seen the emergence of powerful racial equity organizing and leadership across the state. Today our work also produces and supports the many tools & resources necessary to achieve racial equity in our state. We work with communities to build racial equity into conversations about education, economic opportunity, affordable housing, public transportation, criminal justice, and more."
