Axis of Justice is a non-profit organization co-founded by Serj Tankian (of System of a Down) and Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman). Its purpose is to bring together musicians, fans of music, and grassroots political organizations to fight for social justice together.

In a recent interview, Tom Morello remarked that he formed Axis of Justice with Serj Tankian after witnessing some members of the audience at Ozzfest 2002 promoting racist symbols and imagery. In an effort to promote a staunchly anti-racist and anti-fascist message, Axis of Justice allied with Anti-Racist Action shortly after its formation.cite video

An Axis of Justice tent might appear at music festivals where either Rage Against The Machine or System of a Down (who is currently on an indefinite hiatus) are playing, as it did at Lollapalooza 2003. The Axis Of Justice also puts out a monthly radio show that can be heard on KPFK in Los Angeles, California and on XM Satellite Radio. The shows are archived in MP3 format on the AOJ website and are available as free downloads. They also have a number of books on their website that they recommend to support their views.

In 2004, they released a live album/DVD entitled "". It contains performances by Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brad Wilk and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Audioslave, Serj Tankian from System of a Down, Pete Yorn, Tim Walker, Maynard James Keenan of Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, and Wayne Kramer among others. It was recorded during a concert at the Avalon in Los Angeles. The concert was a benefit to raise money for the Axis of Justice and a variety of causes.
