Justice First Tour

On April 14th, the Justice First Tour will stop in Charlotte, NC! RETI is a co-host with many other amazing organizations. Join us for a FREE evening of local speakers, solution-centered dialogue, and celebration through art and music. 

The Justice First Tour aims to unify and strengthen disparate communities and movements in order to create a more intersectional Southern movement centered around justice, including social, economic, climate, racial, political, environmental, gender, sexual orientation, and creation justice. If we are going to solve these problems, we need to put justice first.
