From the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements to the Women’s March, resistance in the name of women’s rights has been gaining momentum in the US. We at GGJ, are organizing a social media mini-campaign to push the conversation further, and we are asking you to join us! Our goal is to shed light on grassroots feminism and the reality that our organizing struggles, from housing to climate to anti-militarization, are deeply connected to the fight against patriarchy.
Action Toolkit for
1000 Durbans for Climate Justice
Prepared by Rose Brewer, AfroEco and Yuki Kidokoro, GGJ
This paper was prepared by members of the Inter-Alliance Dialogue (GGJ, Jobs With Justice, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, and the Pushback Network) for the Funder/Movement Process at the US Social Forum.
We invite members and allies to read and share the paper which describes the growth of the grassroots organizing sector in the US, and the need for increased committed resources for grassroots organizing.
Within GGJ we've made the commitment to increase our own education on the politics of climate change disruption and the need for climate justice. At our February membership assembly and again at our September coordinating committee, GGJ members and leaders decided to make climate justice work a priority for our alliance, and to engage in both education and collective action toward this goal.
GGJ is pleased to announce the release of our new report:
