Climate Justice Alliance (CJA)

CJA forges a socially and economically just transition away from “extreme energy” towards healthy, resilient local communities, to address the root causes of climate change.

CJA is a collaborative of over 35 community-based and movement support organizations uniting frontline communities to forge a scalable, and socio-economically just transition away from unsustainable energy towards local living economies to address the root causes of climate change.
