Episode 28: "Community Justice For All" - A Conversation About Harvard's Houston Insti

Far too often, communities of color are left out of policy discussions and decisions that directly affect their livelihoods, opportunities, and well-being. Today, we focus our discussion on how to incorporate and nurture voices within communities of color as a strategy to achieve justice by interviewing Dr. David Harris, Executive Director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard Law School. During the interview, we discuss the promise and potential of current social justice movements in relation to historical civil rights movements (31:35), the importance of nurturing voices within affected communities (33:48), and how to harness the power of social media to enact change (36:57). We also have a conversation about the importance of both radical and incremental approaches to social change (41:09), we define community justice and discuss how to achieve it (45:55), and highlight strategies of action that everyday people can use to create change (54:52)
