Our Mission

The Benjamin Crump Social Justice Institute (BCSJI) is an innovative multidisciplinary/multi-cultural approach to learning that encourages various perspectives aimed at ensuring that the voices of all are equally heard and acknowledged.

The mission of the BCSJI is to foster opportunities to ensure that the fair and proper administration of laws that safeguard the fundamental rights of everyone, regardless of race, ethnic origin, gender identity, possessions, or socioeconomic status are treated equally and without prejudice not only in the legal system but in life. The BCSJI is designed to address the social issues that disproportionately impact our most vulnerable citizens. The Institute was created based on the eloquent words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. which state that a “true peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.”

The BSCJI serves as a virtual call to action to communities everywhere that they have the moral obligation to acknowledge and fight social injustice when it is witnessed. The BCSJI provides the skills, knowledge, and learning to cultivate such action. The BCSJI has developed global partnerships with organizations such as the National Medical Association, the National Bar Association, and the National Civil Rights Trial Lawyers Association.
