Journey for Justice Alliance

Vision: J4J is intentionally creating a space for organized low-income and working class communities who are directly impacted by top-down privatization and school closings efforts. J4J member’s organizations are built and led primarily by parents and youth of color and fight for community-driven school improvement. 

Impact: J4J aids local organizing through technical assistance and helping to nationalize local fights. J4J is led by a coordinating committee and a national director with decades of experience in community organizing, and utilizes this collective experience to provide their member groups in various training in areas.
