ABOUT JUSTICE SUNDAY
The words “justice” and “Sunday” are symbols of faith, fairness, and freedom, all of which were core values of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s (MLK) selfless service, along with countless others who committed time, talent, and life to change.
Justice Sunday weekend serves as a symbolic call-to-action before and beyond the MLK Day of Service. The goal is to remind Americans of the responsibility each has to serve for the greater good.
A strategic theme for its path forward, “Writing A New History,” the 400 Years of African American History Commission will salute the pursuit of justice by partnering with the National Alliance of Faith and Justice and the National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice to encourage a continuum of service and knowledge.
JUSTICE SYSTEM IMPACT
Nearly one in two adults in the U.S. have or have had an immediate family member in jail or prison. People of Color disproportionately feel this impact more, according to the National Alliance of Faith and Justice, which states African Americans are three times as likely to be incarcerated.
