Climate Justice Alliance



Region of Focus: 
Climate Justice Alliance (CJA) formed in 2013 to create a new center of gravity in the climate movement by uniting frontline communities and organizations into a formidable force. Our translocal organizing strategy and mobilizing capacity is building a Just Transition away from extractive systems of production, consumption and political oppression, and towards resilient, regenerative and equitable economies. We believe that the process of transition must place race, gender and class at the center of the solutions equation in order to make it a truly Just Transition. 
Together, We
1) Inspire and organize bold action by communities on the frontlines of climate change to challenge the extractive economy that is harming people and ecosystems;
2) Build resilient, regenerative and equitable economies rooted in place-based webs of social and ecological relationships;
3) Expose false promises posed as ‘solutions’ to the climate crisis, so that precious resources are not allocated to programs that exacerbate social or economic inequality or cause further ecological disruption;
4) Confront governments and industry to act boldly on climate change.
Our members have won significant victories against polluting and extractive industries, preventing new carbon emissions from reaching our atmosphere. We are building local alternatives that center traditional ecological and cultural knowledge and create a pathway for a regenerative future.
