Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page. Journey to Justice is raising funds via CIVA, a charity supporting our work.

We need to keep our work going. Please help us bring JtoJ to Nottingham and Bristol where local teams are planning to welcome the exhibition with education and arts programmes and local untold stories of collective action for human rights.

We managed to raise enough for Newcastle, Sheffield, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Tower Hamlets and Lambeth thank you - our Just Giving donors and generous trusts, foundations, trade unions, Councils, universities, corporations and individuals giving what they can.

‘We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.’

(Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1963, from his jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama) 

 Dr. King's belief that our lives are inextricably interrelated is a message that transcends time, place and issue and is the inspiration for our flagship project - a multi-media travelling exhibition. We are an alliance of artists, educators, students, youth groups,communities, human rights & faith organisations, filmmakers,musicians, historians, curators, trade unionists and politicians. Jto J was founded in 2013 in response to:

i) increasing inequalities of income, education and employment opportunities

ii) a substantial number of citizens feeling hopeless and disconnected despite a wealth of social change organisations.

Our patrons are: Leyla Hussein, campaigner against gender-based violence; Lord Herman Ouseley, founder of Kick It Out, the anti-discrimination football project; Baroness Helena Kennedy QC and Sir Geoffrey Bindman QC, leading human rights lawyers and Dr. Paul Stephenson, leader of the successful 1963 Bristol bus boycott against the colour bar. Our work strikes a chord in people whatever the justice issue they are concerned about whether unemployment, care of older people or domestic violence and the response has been tremendous

We are raising funds for our travelling exhibition programme which tells the story of the US civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s and its links to the UK through the iconic music, highlighting untold stories of men, women and children who were involved and what makes a campaign work.  As the exhibition travels, we partner with communities, incorporating lessons from local struggles against injustice. 

Complemented by arts, intergenerational activities and our website, Journey to Justice aims to inspire and empower people to think about how change can happen led by ‘people like us’.
