Of the many organizations in New Jersey promoting social justice and progressive causes, the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice (BRCSJ) is one of the newest. Or as its founder, Robt Seda-Schreiber puts it, it’s moving from infancy to adolescence.
While it’s looking for a headquarters space, so far its been run out of Seda-Schreiber’s Princeton Junction home. That’s where we recorded this interview with him.
Bayard Rustin’s name may not be as well-known as those of Martin Luther King Jr., Julian Bond, or Malcolm X in the Civil Rights movement, but Seda-Schreiber talks about Rustin’s legacy and how that has influenced the formation and operation of BRCSJ. He goes on to summarize the organization’s activities since its formation last October and provides his vision for expanding and reaching out to promote social justice among disparate constituencies.
