About Just Solutions
As a national, movement partner organization, our goal is to broaden and deepen the understanding and implementation of equitable and effective climate policies and programs at a scale and pace that match the urgency of the climate crisis.
We are a BIPOC-led organization that partners with communities disproportionately impacted by climate change to turn their priorities and ideas into policies and laws. We draw from community-created solutions and invest deeply in “innovator” states where justice-centered organizations and coalitions have demonstrated the vision, strategy, and political power to win and implement climate policies that strengthen their communities’ health, economic security, and resiliency.
Staff & Board
Our staff, board and key partners are movement thought leaders, advocates, researchers, policy experts, lawyers, and educators with personal, lived experiences and deep expertise working in frontline communities.
We foster a feminist work culture that values the health and well being of staff, partners, family and community. We are a collective, meaning our work is not about the individual and elevating personal power, accomplishment and recognition but rather mutual benefit, generosity, support and collective learning. We are committed to the Jemez Principles and being an Anti-Racist organization through our work and how our workplace functions.
We believe those most harmed by climate change should lead in the design and implementation of solutions.
Racial & Economic Justice
We believe climate solutions are inextricably rooted in the fight for racial and economic justice.
We believe leading with equitable solutions provides the most effective policy roadmap for addressing the climate crisis.
We believe the climate movement can only succeed if justice-centered movement leaders have the power and resources to shape and lead policy strategy and implementation at the federal, state, and local level.
We believe collaboration across issue priorities and sectors – non-profit, academia, philanthropy and government – must be prioritized to build the broad base of support needed to address climate change.
