Racial justice and the fight against racism has had many faces as different organizations have been prominent in the movement over the last century in America. The movements have been aimed at making social change to fix society’s damaged system that put people who are in minorities of the population, predominantly black including people of color (BIPOC), at a disadvantage. These justice movements began in the 20th century and include the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott, which boycotted public transportation due to their mandated segregation, and the 1963 Birmingham Campaign, which was aimed at ending economic policies that discriminated.
In the 2010s and 2020s, these movements shifted towards ending the root cause of these systemic issues, racism, as opposed to treating the ill effects of the actions. The mission of ending racism in society and governing agencies helps ensure a more just and equitable society with fair and equal treatment for all races and enables a society where people have equitable opportunities to be safe and successful.
