Our Story

Austin Justice Coalition (AJC) is a community organization that focuses on improving the quality of life for people who are Black, Brown, and poor. Since 2015, AJC has served as a catalyst for positive change towards economic and racial equity for Austin’s people of color by developing, organizing, and providing robust programs and events. 

Our Vision

AJC serves people who are historically and systematically impacted by gentrification, segregation, over policing, a lack of educational and employment opportunities, and other institutional forms of racism in Austin.


AJC is a Black-led organization that elevates lived experience, builds leadership, organizes, advocates, celebrates Black culture, and mobilizes people to boldly fight racist systems through a Black, queer, feminist, abolitionist lens.

Supporting People of Color

AJC’s mission is to improve the quality of life for people of color by helping them be the driving force behind their own liberation. 

Narrowing the Scope

AJC strives to narrow the scope of the criminal legal system

What We Do

Throughout the years, AJC has developed a series of social justice programs aimed at eliminating systems that create racial disparities.
