Journal of The Registry


Journal of The Registry is a community ally and catalyst for social change through the advocacy of inclusive justice. The primary goal is to offer an open source for voices, visions and thoughts that are often buried in the noise of doing the work at all levels of society.  Journal of The Registry is a space to challenge communities and to propel those in positions of power to make the real, substantive changes necessary in order to bring about true equity through Black America. To be informed and literate of one’s intersections with others can be difficult yet is required for clarity, the final step to understanding.
