United Justice Coalition, Team Roc set to debut Social Justice Convention

The United Justice Coalition, in partnership with Team Roc, the philanthropic branch of Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, is having its inaugural Social Justice Convention on Saturday, July 23 in New York City.

The purpose of the convention is to examine the nuanced Black American experience.

Team Roc Managing Director Dania Diaz talked about the overall vision and goal for the event in a recent interview with theGrio’s Natasha S. Alford. The idea for the Social Justice Convention started in 2019 when a “meeting of the minds” led to the formal foundation of the United Justice Coalition. The event is meant to bring leaders, experts and advocates together to talk about issues that impact the Black community, such as police violence, political policies, voter registration and more.

“We learned very early on in all of [Team Roc’s] work that the power of the collective is so much greater,” Diaz said. “We just gather to talk about issues and really start to think about what is the best way to put our resources together, to change policy [and] to amplify issues that really concern us.”
