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
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.
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.
TRAINING MOVEMENT LEADERS
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.
CHANGING PUBLIC OPINION
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.
