Reimagining Justice in the 21st Century
with John Lewis and Eric Holder
Fifty years after the signing of landmark civil rights legislation in the United States, demographic shifts are bringing about enormous social, political, and economic transformation—and profound opportunity. Today, we have the chance to lift up and celebrate the voices of all communities, and to build a more inclusive and participatory democracy. At the same time, we must confront deep-seated anxieties that have created barriers to progress.
Are we at a tipping point? How do we translate growing awareness and engagement into the kind of action that can change systems? What does a 21st-century social justice infrastructure look like—and what will it take to realize it?
On Monday, December 7, we came together to explore these and other questions in an afternoon of conversations with leaders on the front lines of civil rights. You can watch videos of all those conversations right here.
