Grassroots Global Justice is an alliance of U.S.-based grassroots groups who are organizing to build an agenda for power for working and poor people. We understand that there are important connections between the local issues we work on and the global context, and we see ourselves as part of an international movement for global justice.
We believe that movement building is grounded in the development of grassroots organizations and leadership development to achieve local, national, and global justice.
We believe in building relationships of solidarity between and among organizations in the United States and across the world. We have much to learn from and share with our international allies.
We believe that as a US based organizations, we must be committed to building a strong enough movement to prevent the US government and US corporations from suppressing popular movements and interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.
We believe in creating opportunities for convergence that facilitate resource sharing, popular and political education, skill sharing and dialogue between organizations.
We believe in joint action, that acting together in the U.S. and globally we have more power to create social change.
We believe by working together – Another World is Possible, a world based on the principles of international solidarity, justice, peace, dignity, equality, human rights, sustainability and democracy!
