WHO WE ARE
Just Solutions is a BIPOC-led, national climate organization that partners with communities disproportionately impacted by climate change to turn their priorities and ideas into policies and laws.
WHAT WE’RE SAYING
The Just Solutions Podcast explores relevant climate and environmental justice stories from the perspective of BIPOC-Frontline Environmental Justice communities.
We proactively assess challenges and opportunities within local, state and federal legislation and programs to define and elevate justice-centered policy solutions.
We offer a two-year Senior Fellows Program for seasoned policy experts and advocates to explore their interests in more depth and share their expertise as thought leaders, mentors and trainers. And we are developing Climate Justice Policy Training Institutes for emerging leaders as well as campaign-specific, peer learning cohorts for more seasoned policy leaders to advance strategy and innovation.
We convene and lead federal and state “Innovation Hubs” to provide space, time, and resources for state partners to strengthen networks, share successful models, push their thinking on policy solutions, and advance campaign strategy at the state and federal level.
We provide education and communication offerings to disseminate lessons learned, shape public discourse, deepen understanding of justice-centered solutions, and build a broader base of support.
We engage allies in non-profit, academia, philanthropy and government sectors to leverage and align resources, expertise, and networks in support of our partners’ campaigns.
