Networking on Purpose – February 2020

Topic: Serving up Justice, both Inside and Outside of the Workplace. Panelists: James Reid, Rodney U Bellamy, Tiffany Sinclair, PHR, SHRM-SCP. Spotlight Organization: Detroit Justice Center. This organization’s’ mission is to work alongside communities to create economic opportunities, transform the justice system, and promote equitable and just cities. DJC is founded on the belief that we cannot build cities that work for everyone without remedying the impacts of mass incarceration. This mission requires innovative ways of community lawyering—rooted in defensive and offensive fights for racial justice and economic equity—that build up our poorest residents through direct services and novel approaches to land use, housing, and employment.
