Yorktown For Justice
A local grassroots collaborative.
Yorktown for Justice brings together our residents and neighbors to work collaboratively towards equity and justice in our community through education, advocacy and activism. We are actively working to make changes that address social inequities evident in our local area. We aim to partner with community members and various administrations and establishments in Yorktown on issues of inclusivity, diversity, and multicultural appreciation and celebration. We strive to work towards a material change in the quality of life for everyone living in Yorktown.
