Human Justice March 2022
On October 11th, 2022 several thousands of people from across the world, Joined Executive Director K. Bain of Community Capacity Development (CCD) along with the New York Public Advocates Office, the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, various community led violence interruption groups along with other New York City organizations, national and international partners. The aforementioned organizations marched in effort to bring awareness to the plight of the most marginalized among us, especially Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) NATIONWIDE. Systemic racism imbedded in institutions, legislation and policies continues to have a dehumanizing effect on our collective quality of life. We are fighting to end gun violence, food injustice, discriminatory immigration practices, mass incarceration, wealth disparity, housing issue, education, gender discrimination, criminal justice, climate change and all other structural impediments to human justice. Both preceding and succeeding the March, there were events.
The Purpose of this Citywide/Nationwide Human Justice March is a call to action towards ending racial injustice and creating equity in our city, state, and nation. This March is intentionally set on Indigenous Peoples’ Survival Day (formerly Christopher Columbus Day), to highlight the fact that we recognize the exploitation of the BIPOC community as the foundation of this nation’s economic wealth and historic value. The 2022 NYC Human Justice March is a platform for people of all backgrounds, regardless of socioeconomic status, religion, gender and race, to stand united in the fight for equity opportunities and resources. It was a memorable day.
