Detroit Justice Center (DJC) and our Just City Innovation Lab are working to ensure Detroit and other cities are equitable, affordable and inclusive for generations to come. We aim to reduce poverty and build power among Detroit’s most vulnerable residents -particularly the low-income, black majority that stands to be shut out from the city’s vaunted resurgence. Building a city and design economy that works for everyone will require ideas and solutions that are tailor-made for the needs of our most marginalized residents. DJC will continue to work toward solutions that are guided by the wisdom of these residents.
DJC is a non-profit law firm working alongside communities to create economic opportunities, transform the justice system, and promote equitable and just cities.
