The Social Justice Center at FIT
The Social Justice Center at FIT, a first-of-its-kind initiative in higher education, is a groundbreaking effort to address the systemic problems faced by BIPOC youth, college students, and working professionals in the fields that drive the creative economy. The SJC offers meaningful support and services to help BIPOC students and employees succeed in the creative industries, including fashion. We believe these efforts can significantly increase diversity and equity in these industries.
