"Design justice compels us to begin by listening to community organizers, learning what they are working on, and asking what the most useful focus of design efforts would be. In this way, design processes can be community-led, rather than designer- or funder-led. Another way to put this might be: 'Don't start by building a new table; start by coming to the table.'"

- Sasha Costanza-Chock, Design Justice
