Concerned Citizens for Justice

Concerned Citizens for Justice

Concerned Citizens for Justice (CCJ) was founded in 1984 by Maxine Cousin, Annie Thomas, and Ms. Thomas’ two daughters, Lisa and Lydia. The organization was founded in the wake of the Wadie Suttles case to address, publicize, and protest police brutality. The organization laid the groundwork for the Federal Civil Rights lawsuit, Brown v. Board of Commissioners, which changed the racist, at-large commission form of government in Chattanooga. CCJ was reactivated in 2012 after the murder of Trayvon Martin by activists, students, union organizers and other community members in order to fill a vacuum left by the assaults on and in hopes of reenergizing the Black Liberation Movement in Chattanooga, TN.
