Past CJA Funder Briefs

Watch the first  Funder Briefings for Just Transition, a four-part series organized by

Climate Justice Alliance, to learn how Just Transition principles, strategies, and practices of frontline communities provide systemic solutions for the planet. 



This series funder brief was sponsored by JPB Foundation & Mertz Gilmore Foundation

People’s Just Transition:
Community-Centered, Community-Led

Communities of color and working-class people are the first and most impacted by climate disasters — droughts, storms, and wildfires — as well as the poverty and pollution burdens of the dig, burn, dump economy causing these events. Organizers in these communities, with lived knowledge of these impacts, are applying their power, wisdom, and vision to tackle the climate crisis with Just Transition strategies to build resilient, regenerative, and equitable economies to meet the needs of our common future.
