Metro Justice

Founded in 1965 as Friends of FIGHT, a group aiming to achieve equal access to good jobs at Kodak, Metro Justice is a member-driven, grassroots organization dedicated to social, economic, and racial justice in Rochester.  The organization now has about 1,000 members working collectively to end Rochester’s significant wealth inequality and poverty.   Specific ongoing campaigns focus on achieving an industry-wide $15 per hour wage for fast food workers, ending the school-to-prison pipeline through restorative justice measures in school discipline policy, passing a state-wide women’s equality act, and changing the nature of nursing homes to better support elders.
