About the Organization:

TakeRoot Justice (TakeRoot) was founded in 2001 as the Community Development Project at the Urban Justice Center and provides legal, participatory research and policy support to strengthen the work of grassroots and community-based groups in New York City to dismantle racial, economic and social oppression. TakeRoot separated from the Urban Justice Center and became an independent nonprofit organization in 2019.


TakeRoot employs a unique model of partnership with grassroots and community-based groups. Our partners take the lead in determining the priorities and goals for our work, and advance our understanding of justice. We believe in a theory of change where short-term and individual successes help build the capacity and power of our partners, who in turn can have longer-term impact on policies, laws and systems that affect their communities. Our work has greater impact because it is done in connection with organizing, building power and leadership development. Internally, all staff engage in a democratic process of organizational governance that allows all voices to be heard and all staff to have a say in decisions about how to run our organization.
