Journey to Justice
Our mission is to galvanise people to take action for social justice through learning about human rights movements and the arts. Journey to Justice (registered charity No. 117086) is an alliance of volunteers across all age groups, sectors and regions of the country who believe that stories from the past of ‘ordinary’ people who took non-violent action for justice and human rights can inspire us to become active citizens ourselves.
Our travelling exhibition tells little known stories of people involved in the US Civil Rights Movement and makes links to historic and current UK movements for change. We’ve already been on Tyneside and Wearside, in South Yorkshire, Nottingham, East and South London, Bristol, the West Country and Liverpool – in each place sharing local histories and running linked activities that continue after the exhibition has left. We work with everyone and a major focus of what we do is with schools and youth groups using powerful stories, music, poetry, art, film and hands-on activity.
