Mission Statement

Californians for Justice is a statewide grassroots organization working for racial justice by building power in communities that have been pushed to the margins of the political process. We organize youth, immigrants, low-income people and communities of color in order to improve their social, economic and political conditions.

Description

Californians for Justice (CFJ) was founded in 1995 as a statewide campaign to defend affirmative action in California. Following the campaign, CFJ was incorporated as a non-profit membership organization to engage with and build power for those who were pushed out of the political process--people of color, immigrants and youth. Our core strategies are base-building, alliances and policy campaigns. CFJ conducts youth and parent organizing in four strategic locations of California-Long Beach, Fresno, San Jose, and Oakland. We lead a statewide alliance and work in local coalitions to advance an educational justice agenda at the local and state level. In recent years, CFJ has reversed cuts to college outreach programs and initiated a dynamic coalition of youth, parent, policy, and law organizations to serve as a vehicle to shape state level education reform from a grassroots perspective.
