About Justice is Global

Justice is Global is building a grassroots movement to make the global economy equitable and sustainable. We started organizing around progressive alternatives to the US-China conflict and global solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic. Justice is Global plans to build a new campaign within the US for global climate cooperation. There is a gap in the movement ecosystem for grassroots organizing and advocacy on US federal policy related to a global climate response. Not only is addressing the global dimensions of climate response a critical need in achieving emissions reductions targets that would avert the worst possible climate outcomes, it is an opportunity to engage key constituencies and shift political possibilities for progressives across the US. Our goal is to build a long term program that will not only campaign for the needed policy changes, but build the grassroots constituency needed to sustain and back up this agenda. Currently we're partnering on a marker bill with allies in Congress to support global climate cooperation and we plan to transform this messaging bill into a multiyear campaign to win federal policy change.
