The Gathering for Justice was founded in 2005 by Harry Belafonte after he witnessed a news report of a 5 year old black girl being handcuffed and arrested in her Florida classroom for “being unruly”. The Gathering’s mission is to build a movement to end child incarceration while working to eliminate the racial inequities in the criminal justice system that enliven mass incarceration.


From its inception, The Gathering provided a safe environment for policy and model exchange, and dialogue between generations of activists, community members, formerly-incarcerated individuals, gang members and academics from all communities and cultures. Since 2013, The Gathering has stepped up our work building justice initiatives and supporting movements on multiple fronts. We’ve led policy initiatives for police accountability, organized as a diverse ‘family coalition’ to build the agenda for sustained black and brown liberation, catalyzed the re-introduction of federal legislation to end racial profiling and stop the militarization of law enforcement, engaged a serious and sustained effort for Raise the Age in NY State, and created a blueprint for criminal justice redress and accountability for NY City and State.


This success, along with our work with the Women’s March, has led to huge impact. Continuing our intergenerational work grounded in principles of Kingian Nonviolence, we are launching new programs in California and across the country in the coming months.
