You can win this nifty OneJustice water bottle!

You can win this nifty OneJustice water bottle!

Yep, it’s the beginning of the month again – Happy February!  And you know what that means, right?  It’s time for our next OneJustice contest.  (January was all about your favorite justice movies – did you miss the list of all “must watch” justice flicks?  No worries, you can still get it on the blog here.)

This month we’re asking you to post your favorite song relating to equality, fairness, peace, love – however YOU interpret the concept of justice.  Everyone who posts is entered in a drawing to win a super awesome OneJustice water bottle.  Extra points if you post a video of YOU singing the song!  You can post your favorite justice-related song on any of our social media sites:

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/OneJustice

LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/company/onejustice

Or by commenting on this blog post.

Post now, post often – the contest closes at midnight of February 8th.  Happy Singing, all!

We’ll start the list by posting “One Day” by Matisyahu.  (Sorry, no video of any OneJustice staff singing, yet.  Maybe we’ll have a brave soul volunteer next week!)

    “Justice” by Cassandra Wilson. I think we all agree that we “want some of that (justice)”!

    Awesome fun! Okay… “Imagine” by John Lennon comes to mind immediately. Then there’s Eric Clapton’s “Change the World”. “Equal Rights” by Peter Tosh. “Get Up, Stand Up” by Bob Marley. And, of course, “We Shall Overcome” (That was my mother’s favorite song). I’m stopping now. 🙂

    How about Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Going to Come”?

    “Behind the Wall” by Tracy Chapman. We used it with a video for our domestic violence clinic years ago, and the checks we got all came tear stained.

    “Strange Fruit” performed by Billie Holiday and written by Abel Meeropol. It’s a defiant song that protests cruelty and humanizes the victims of lynchings by using visual imagery. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4ZyuULy9zs
