The New Justice was a twice-monthly journal published by the Friends of the Russian Revolution out of Los Angeles and edited by Roswell Brownson and Clarence Melly. Inspired by the Russian Revolution, New Justice was one of many communist journals that were produced by the Socialist Party’s Left Wing and the IWW.
