Our joint HBCU-CBO driven collaboration launched its Justice40: A Time for Righteous Investment initiative in August 2022—convening more than 100 leaders of community-based organizations, small businesses, and faith-based groups. Recently, the Bullard Center and DSCEJ organized Justice40 Regional Hubs led by people of color and indigenous community-based organizations.
