Climate Justice Alliance

CJA is a collaborative of more than 35 community-based and movement support organizations uniting frontline communities. CJA is forging a scalable, and socio-economically just transition away from unsustainable energy towards local living economies to address the root causes of climate change.

It is rooted in Indigenous, African American, Latino, Asian Pacific Islander and working-class white communities throughout the US Through the Our Power Campaign – Communities United for a Just Transition, the CJA is applying the power of deep grassroots organizing to win local, regional, statewide and national shifts. These communities comprise more than 100 million people, often living near toxic, climate polluting energy infrastructure or other facilities. As racially oppressed and/or economically marginalized groups, these communities have suffered disproportionately from the impacts of pollution and the ecological crisis, and share deep histories of struggle in every arena, including organizing, mass direct action, electoral work, cultural revival and policy advocacy.
