Justice ReMix’d — It’s Back!

The sweet taste of justice.

Advancement Project National Office is proud to partner with Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream to bring back its limited-time flavor: Justice ReMix'd!

With cinnamon and chocolate ice creams, gobs of cinnamon bun dough, and spicy fudge brownies, Justice ReMix’d™ has just the right zip for kick starting a conversation about the importance of racial equity in America, and the need for criminal justice reform. Even better? A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Justice ReMix’d™ will go to Advancement Project National Office as we continue to support grassroots partners actively waging campaigns to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline, end mass incarceration and combat systemic racism. Now that’s what we call sweet!

Find a pint at your local grocery store, or visit one of Ben & Jerry's scoop shops to see what justice tastes like.

Defund the Police is the Right Demand, Policy Makers Should Take Note

By Thomas Harvey, Justice Project Director Former President Barack Obama recently made headlines when he called defund the police a “snappy slogan” and urged Black organizers to decide if they “actually want to get something done” or if they just “want to feel good among people you already agree with” during an interview with Peter Hamby on Snapchat’s “Good Luck America.” Generally speaking, supporters of defund the police fall into two camps: those who want to reallocate bloated police budgets to social services or community programs and those who want to do that as a first step on the…

Every Voter Counts

“20 years ago, I came down (to Florida) right after the election, and it’s why I had to be down here in 2020. I know how close this election might be. Twenty years ago it was 537 votes and I keep that with me: 537 votes,” says Judith Browne Dianis, Executive Director of Advancement Project National Office. “Black voters were disenfranchised and could have made the difference, which means that their voices weren’t heard.” Our democracy is under attack and now, more than ever, a strong progressive movement is necessary to make sure every voter counts.
