Salon Juste is a bi-monthly series of evening discussions hosted by Community Justice Project with the generous support of the Knight Foundation. Inspired by the salons of the Harlem Renaissance, we are creating space for robust exchanges of ideas to spur the creativity that emerges from increased connectivity and understanding across different backgrounds. Each month, the discussions will touch on timely topics, centered around the stories of incredible Miami community leaders whose expertise and talents arise from their lived experiences as people directly impacted by social injustice.

APRIL 5 - THE SCIENCE BARGE
Thank you to those who joined us for Salon Juste No. 3: On WOMEN+WORK
On the heels of the historic Women's March, we held Salon Juste No. 3: On Women and Work on Thursday, February 16, 2017 at Soya e Pomodoro in downtown Miami. We anchored our reflections with a discussion on women and work with the story of domestic workers, a cross-section of workers who are overwhelmingly women and particularly vulnerable to workplace abuse. The conversation between June Barrett and Carla Hansack, two local powerhouse domestic workers and leaders of the Miami Workers Center, and incredible lawyer/advocate Adele Valencia was moderated by Kathie Klarreich. The setting was beautifully designed by Heidi Lellelid, with paintings made specially for the occasion by art students from Miami-Dade College.
Our first salon "On Mobilizing, Against the Odds" took place on September 28, 2016 at The Anderson. It featured an interview with community leader Anthony Butler, a New Florida Majority organizer from Miami Gardens who has been mobilizing hundreds of people in his community to vote and participate in efforts to better their neighborhood.
We held our second salon, "On Getting Around: A Conversation on Taxi Drivers, Uber and the Consumer in Between," as part of Thursdays @ Venture Cafe on December 8, 2016. It centered the perspective of drivers as the face of transportation is rapidly changing. More on that salon on our taxi drivers page here.
