The NYC Black Leadership Advisory Coalition for Census 2020 (NYC BLAC) is the current focus of the CLSJ’s larger Census Justice 2020 and Redistricting Project. NYC BLAC is a community organizing and education project that aims to engage leaders, activists, and organizations of NYC’s very diverse communities of African descent towards a complete count of their communities in the 2020 Census.

Center for Law and Social Justice

Founded in Brooklyn in 1985 as a community service unit of Medgar Evers College to serve as an institutional response to pervasive racial injustices, the Center for Law and Social Justice continues pushing for meaningful policy changes to stem the institutionalization of police brutality and systemic racism across New York City. In addition to promoting alternative community policing solutions, it is a leading advocate for the protection and integrity of voting rights and for racial equity in public education.
