United for a Just Transition
In July 2017, Urban Tilth became an official member of the Climate Justice Alliance. We are excited to work nationally with grassroots organizations to co-create a new sustainable economy by helping to Change the Story, Build the New, Fight the Bad, Move the Money and collectively Build a Movement of Movements.
CJA is rooted in Indigenous, African American, Latino, Asian Pacific Islander, and working-class white communities throughout the U.S. We are applying the power of deep grassroots organizing to win local, regional, statewide, and national shifts. These communities comprise more than 100 million people, often living near toxic, climate-polluting energy infrastructure or other facilities. As racially oppressed and/or economically marginalized groups, these communities have suffered disproportionately from the impacts of pollution and the ecological crisis, and share deep histories of struggle in every arena, including organizing, mass direct action, electoral work, cultural revival, and policy advocacy.
Together we are strengthening relationships between community-based organizations, environmentalists, labor unions, food sovereignty/sustainable agriculture groups, and other sectors of society.
As CJA we are coalescing our power to reshape the economy and governance in the coming decades – we are communities united for a just transition.”
