About


Julian’s mission is to attack discrimination in all forms through legal advocacy and activism in order to exact justice, foster equality, and innovate and advance the doctrines of civil and human rights law so that they will evolve in stride with social change and fulfill their purpose of protecting and empowering the vulnerable. Our intention is to revive the spirit, effectiveness, strategy, and impact of the civil rights movement to end lynchings, unjustified police killings, and all other hate crimes and rights violations.

Julian is the next phase of civil rights. Through litigation, we push back against all forms of discrimination and advocate for social change. Through technology and innovation, we create the civil rights haven of tomorrow. For us, love and a calling are at the core of what we do. The beloved community is now. It’s us. Like the union that our nation’s forefathers called us to make more perfect, the beloved community is ever evolving, and it’s on us to perfect it...TOGETHER.
