This piece depicts Lady Justice overlooking anchor institutions, corporations, and the Newark skyline of employers. She sits on a rug, a money rug more specifically, as she removes her blindfold. She knows to achieve equity and close the racial wealth gap, one cannot be blind or deaf to injustice. Lady Justice is surrounded by symbols of home ownership, businesses, and community based organizations with her scale right beside her.
