Black raised fist.

Mission Statement

For Portland residents of color and allies who seek justice in response to historical inequities by the justice system, Rose City Justice (RCJ) is a Black-led, BIPOC supported, grassroots organization committed to unifying local activism efforts. We are dedicated to bringing awareness to the people, creating reform to systems founded on inequitable and racist ideals, and demanding justice in a non-violent manner. We recognize the importance of multiple voices, multiple perspectives, and multiple causes that can lead to local or systemic changes. We choose to elevate Black voices and focus on systems that disparage the Black community. By supporting both policy and protest, RCJ advocates for our communities to play an active role in holding our legal structures accountable now and always.
