Let's Talk About Justice!
DO YOU WANT JUSTICE? LET'S TALK ABOUT IT!
Our digital story circles are inspired by Junebug Productions, founded in 1980, who use the storytelling model, to generate insight, help build coalitions, build trust, and connect the common threads of our lived experiences. Leaders of social change efforts have used story circle to stimulate memory, and build community solidarity through this group remembering. Junebug Productions have referred to this as ‘creating a tapestry of community’.
We began this project the week of October 25, 2018 when mail bombs targeted prominent liberal figures all over the United States, the killing of two black customers in a Kroger grocery store by a xenophobic white nationalist in Kentucky, and the deadly anti-Semitic massacre at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Claudia Alick, of Calling Up Justice and visual artist Amanda Browder connected and envisioned The Justice Quilt and began holding weekly digital discussions to plan and connect around arts, activism, justice. Societal forces are working to convince us we are not collectively committed to inclusive healthy communities for all of us. We are building, The Justice Quilt, a building-sized Quilt featuring the word “JUSTICE” created from fabric panels sewn by communities in every state across our nation. In 2020 will hold in person story-circles focused on social justice in their community while sewing panels.

Radical Generosity Model
Calling Up Justice works with a RADICAL GENEROSITY model. We begin by acknowledging that in our industry that organizations are resourced at different levels. The first goal of our model is that everyone profits outside of monetary compensation. Calling Up values the work of increasing performances of justice for all communities; compensating culture producers equitably; and inclusion for all. We give the first 30 minutes of our consultations for free, share our resources at no cost, and work on a sliding scale depending on individual capacity. Higher investment in Calling Up supplements our lower income participants and the platforms and tools we use to communicate. We appreciate and value your investment of thought and time. If you share our values and want to invest more you can contribute here PayPal.me/CallingUp
