The SIFJS is a non-partisan and multi-ethnic racial justice and human rights organization and think tank founded by African-Americans that aims to, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., combat “three major evils” including the “the evil of racism, the evil of poverty, and the evil of war,” as they relate to what King referred to as, “racial injustice”. We are dedicated to fighting historical and ongoing existential threats—domestic and international—to Black life and liberty. The SIFJS’s programmatic agenda is organized around three themes: Freedom, Justice and Security, and our programs mainstream four core elements: education, youth, accountability and empowerment. Our core belief is that every living being is divinely made and invaluable. We believe in the UN Charter’s reaffirmation in the “faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women” and in the promotion of “social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.”

In this context, SIFJS embraces the rich African-American tradition of educating and building multi-racial and multi-ethnic coalitions of people and institutions to combat the three evils of racism, poverty and militarism through research, diplomacy, advocacy, litigation and non-violent direct action. The SIFJS serves as a conduit for the legitimate calls for racial justice by African-Americans and other persons of color.
