Rochester Organizing for Social, Economic, and Racial Justice!

Metro Justice is a member-driven, grassroots organization dedicated to social, economic, and racial justice in Rochester, NY. Founded in 1965, as Friends of FIGHT, in a struggle for equal access to good jobs at Kodak, our organization was born fighting for justice and equality for all people. 

Since that time, Metro Justice has evolved, taking on many important issues and growing as we go. Today, with around 1,000 members our Fight for Economic Justice Campaign works to put an end to the incredible wealth inequality and the poverty that our city experiences as a result of that inequality. 

In our 50th year, our focus is the Fight for 15. We are working alongside fast food workers as they fight for a living wage, respect, and the right to a union without retaliation. We know that the only solution to poverty everyday people organized to have the power to change the world for the better. Fast food workers are doing that, and we're standing alongside them to win!

Join the Fight for 15 in Rochester!

    2015 Annual Dinner

    maxresdefault.jpgFor the past eleven years, the Metro Justice Annual Dinner has become a community event that no one wants to miss. Each year, we celebrate our victories and enjoy the company of our members, friends, and allies—we want you to join us at the table.

    Our Annual Dinner is the biggest fundraising event of the year. We want you to fuel our progress in 2014 and support our Dinner. This support keeps us a strong voice within the community, enabling us to take a stand for Economic Justice. As a member-driven organization, you allow us to stay independent of major foundations and remain uncompromising community activists.

    We are excited to invite you to our Metro Justice Annual Dinner at Temple B’rith Kodesh on May 3rd, 2015 at 6:00pm.

    This year, we will feature Mexican Food by Susan Plunkett’s Fabulous Foods as our entree.  

    Also, Rev. Dr. Marvin McMickle, President of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, will be our speaker for the evening. 

    For over 50 years, Metro Justice has remained a strong voice in the community due to member support.  I hope you can join us at the Dinner and celebrate our victories.  If you’re willing to volunteer at the Dinner or donate an appetizer/beverage, please indicate that on the ticket order form and a committee member will contact you.
