Californians for Justice is a statewide grassroots organization working for racial justice by building the power of youth, communities of color, immigrants, low-income families, and LGBTQ communities. Led by students, we organize to advance educational justice and improve our social, economic, and political conditions.
CFJ’s work for social change is rooted in three core principles:
Community Action. We believe that people impacted by social injustice must drive the process of social change with their participation, power, ideas and vision for society.
Solidarity. We believe that diverse communities, especially communities of color, must unite to achieve our shared goals and to support each other actively in our unique struggles.
Human Rights. We believe that every person has a fundamental right to a dignified life free from poverty, discrimination and oppression based on race, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, country of origin, or language.
