About Injustice Anywhere

Following the fatal shooting of young adult Michael Brown on August 9, 2014, by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, several Disciples clergy and laypersons joined many others in community responses for justice in Ferguson and beyond. The documentary film Injustice Anywhere arose in the midst of conversations and work of several expressions of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to share a story of collective experiences from individuals impacted by these events.


From filmmaker Aziza Binti:

“This film seeks to provide solutions, ideas, and compassion for Disciples to see just how valuable their efforts can be, even on a small scale. Social justice is not just “their” problem; it’s everyone’s concern. We reference the quote from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. — ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere’ — to open the film and begin speaking with members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) about their understanding that this is indeed everyone’s issue — especially those who are truly Disciples of Christ.”
