About the Work

TakeRoot Justice provides legal, participatory research and policy support to strengthen the work of grassroots and community-based groups in New York City to dismantle racial, economic and social oppression.

As TakeRoot Justice establishes itself as an independent nonprofit organization and leaves its former home at the Urban Justice Center, Social Ink worked alongside executive leadership, IT and communications staff and consultants to design and develop a brand new website.

Incorporating a recently polished style guide, the site utilizes a dynamic interface of interlocking content and elements: from the fixed position vertical navigation and updates resource bar to automatically compiled resources and news in Practice Area “hubs”, the site weaves together the different elements of TakeRoot’s work, with an eye toward their intersecting user groups–from partners and lawyers to media, activists, and government.

We’re thrilled to give TakeRoot Justice their own home on the web, continuing our decade-long work in the intersection of community, social, racial, and economic justice, nonprofit organizations, and advocacy and activism.
