About The Org

Social Justice for Us
Our Mission

Social Justice For Us is uplifting the voices of marginalized people in Marquette. In rural, predominantly white communities, it's hard to organize any one group for underrepresented peoples, including but not limited to BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and impoverished communities. Oppression is intersectional, so we have created a united front to fight against injustice and to promote education.
