Meet us in Oscar Grant Plaza for a march and action led by two local organizations: Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice (CURYJ) and Mujeres Unidas y Activas (MUA). The action will lift up both organizations’ campaigns around divesting from systems of harm and investing in healing, wellness, and community-controlled grassroots power. This will include a flashmob that we learned from our Chilean feminist friends. We will close with a dinner and rally at the Chinatown Resilience Hub that Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) has fought for and developed over many years.

Grassroots Global Justice (GGJ) is an alliance of over 60 US-based grassroots organizing (GRO) groups comprised of working and poor people and communities of color. GGJ brings GRO groups into a long-term process of relationship building, political alignment and transformational leadership development. We weave and bridge together US-based GRO groups and global social movements working for climate justice, gender justice, an end to war, and a just transition to the next economy. At our 7th Membership Assembly in 2018, the membership of GGJ refined our framework for a holistic approach to building grassroots global justice: No War, No Warming, Build a Just Transition to a Feminist Economy, echoing the framework of Dr. Martin Luther King’s philosophy of the Triple Evils of Poverty, Racism and Militarism and integrating the current day pressing issues of climate change and feminism.
