The Racial Justice Network (RJN) is a multi-racial, grassroots organization, committed to fighting for racial justice and building bridges across racial, social, and economic lines.

RJN is led by Nekima Levy Armstrong, an award-winning attorney, civil rights activist, and former law professor. Nekima has been leading the fight towards racial justice for several years in the Twin Cities, and has catalyzed countless allies to join in the work.

In addition to Nekima’s efforts, RJN is fueled by fellow activists and community members of all backgrounds, working together to make an impact.

RJN is comprised of three subcommittees

Economic Justice Committee

Reparations, community fundraising, crisis support.

Criminal Justice Reform Committee

Police brutality & injustice, policy reform, community safety.

Education Justice Committee

School equity and education accessibility, community engagement.

Areas of Focus

Each committee activates in different ways to achieve goals.


Outreach and relief for crisis response and current needs of community members.


Community support and reparation-based justice through events and galas.


Community and individual activation for justice.
