Climate Justice Alliance

The 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.

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.
