We seek to obtain the goal of racial justice by using a human rights framework and a social movement centered approach. We use our heads, our hands, and our hearts to make a difference:
- HEAD: engaged research when fighting the battle of ideas in the ivory tower;
- HANDS: movement lawyering when fighting for our rights in the courts, the Congress, and other halls of power; and
- HEARTS: community organizing when fighting to build power in the communities where our people live out their lives.
With commitments in the ivory tower, courthouse, Congress, and the community, we hope to serve as a connector that bring out the best in both worlds, all in the service of the movement.
