We can’t stop climate change with solar panels in one country and

we can't keep right wing movements from destroying global society

with one reformed minded candidate in another. These problems need to be

ADDRESSED AT THE SOURCE. We need a unified,

global effort to enact real change.


 

BUILDING A GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT

Over 250,000 people attended the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, which was anchored by 10 grassroots organizations some of which had been building their movement for decades before.

Just like the Civil Rights movement and major progressive shifts before that, change happens when everyday people not only attend rallies and marches but build organizations that can sustain social movements. Justice is Global will do that by lobbying and advocating with decision makers, knocking doors and talking to our neighbors, and holding large public events and rallies. Building organizational power and changing policy at the local level strengthens communities and creates a broad base of support for progressive international policy at the national and international level.

CHANGE THE QUALITY OF GLOBAL LIVING

UNIFYING PROGRESSIVE

ORGANIZATIONS GLOBALLY

We are currently focused on key countries with significant influence on the global economy and international trade—the US, China, Germany, Japan and Mexico. As we grow, we intend to expand to other major countries, including the UK, India, and Brazil, and ultimately build a coalition that reaches all parts of the globe. Green marks represent our top priorities; Blue represents our second tier.

Isolated pockets of grassroots infrastructure is not enough though. To win the bold international legislation we need to build a more equitable and sustainable world, we need to unify a broad coalition across borders. Justice is Global is organizing progressive movements and organizations around the world to campaign and strategize together.

We’re training leaders to have a deep understanding of the global economy and the concrete organization-building skills we need to grow our movement. With interactive workshops on the global economy, speaking tours of international organizers and activists, organizing training, and shareable digital resources for people around the world, we’re training movement leaders to think and act globally.

In collaboration with other movements and organizations, we are working to shift public opinion away from nationalism and towards a new narrative of progressive internationalism rooted in equity and environmental sustainability. Through published articles, interviews, shareable videos, and earned media, we’re moving global justice into the center of public debate.
