Get in high gear this new year to partner with the Climate Justice Alliance (CJA) and Grassroots Global Justice Alliance (GGJ) in forming and supporting grassroots opposition to the incoming administration and building resilient community-led solutions. Join a funder briefing to learn about the main pivots and priorities in strategy from members of the grassroots organizing sector, such as: grassroots-led local, municipal and regional strategies; cross-sector alignment and intersectional movement solutions; policy implementation plans that center the leadership of impacted communities and influence policy at a greater level.
It is within our power to make this a historical turning point, where movements get stronger and more unified and begin to both cohere more defensive fights, and pivot to the offensive together.
