Founded in 1965, Metro Justice is Rochester’s leading grassroots, member-driven, progressive organization working for social and economic justice. When we join together to demand a more fair and just society, our individual voices are louder, our efforts more effective, our power greater.
Metro Justice is led by an elected body of members, our Council. The Council makes most of the major decisions of the organization, both politically and financially. Council members are some of the most active members of the organization and are elected every year at our Annual Members Meeting.
Metro Justice staff take on the day-to-day job of coordinating the efforts and ideas of the Metro Justice membership. They help to implement and organize our campaigns, educate our community, work with community allies, build our membership and keep the doors open.
Metro Justice also has three Task Forces that work on specific projects that are member-driven: The Rochester Committee on Latin America (ROCLA), Ciudad Hermana, and Peace Action and Education.
At all times, Metro Justice has great internship opportunities for youth and students to learn the ropes of social justice organizing. Also find job postings here.
