Achieving Social Justice For All
The United Nations portrays social justice as a peaceful and prosperous coexistence amongst global neighbors, an existence that safeguards principles of equity by purposely removing barriers because of one’s gender, age, race, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, culture, or disability. Through Love in Action, LTNI engages willingness, hope and compassion to fuel the changes necessary for our nation to fully embrace the beauty in our diversity and the definition of inclusion. We are the creative dissenters that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of, we are they who call our beloved nation to a higher destiny, to a new plateau of compassion, to a more noble expression of humanness.

What We Do to Achieve Social Justice for All
Protecting Voter Rights
LTNI’s work to protect our democracy includes increasing voter access to the polls, working to expand same-day and online voter registration and increasing voter education. We also work to remove barriers that prevent citizens from acquiring proper identification. The right to vote is essential to sustaining our democracy.
Increasing Housing Stability
LTNI’s work includes increasing access to housing down-payment assistance programs, housing tax credits and broadening rental assistance and rent controlled housing. We also partner with local communities to expand community development and revitalization projects to support neighborhood revitalization efforts.
Reimagining Our Penal System
For the last 25 years our team has been fighting to end injustices inflicted by America’s penal system. LTNI’s work includes eliminating solitary confinement, cash bail requirements, reducing the use of jails and prisons, broadening access to public or assisted housing, postsecondary education, food assistance and unemployment benefits.
Understanding the Issues
We the People, are in pursuit of those truths that our founding fathers deemed self-evident – truths that professed that all men are created equal, and live in a nation that treats its citizens in kind. The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a reawakening of the inequitable systems, institutions and power structures that negatively impact millions of American families and US economy. Research conducted by McKinsey, reveals that the widening racial equity gap not only disadvantages black and brown families, individuals, and communities, it also constrains the US economy, costing between $1 trillion and $1.5 trillion between 2019 and 2028. While the United States is considered a global leader in socio-economic liberties, there is still much work to be done to evolve past its resistance to change fixed mindsets so we may achieve justice for all.
