Organizing and training for the public good.
Organizing for the public good means building power to expand and protect public goods. In the words of K. Sabeel Rahman, “Public goods are not so much about ‘free stuff’ as they are about the ‘stuff that makes us free.’” This is why fights for public goods hold the keys to a just, democratic future. We help organizations use a public goods framework to build more strategic campaigns.
“The team at the Alliance for a Just Society is powerful in helping groups embed a racial justice analysis in both their organizing practice and campaigns.”— Glenn Harris, Executive Director, Race Forward

Our Colleges, a campaign organized by AJS in Washington State, recently won groundbreaking legislation, securing millions of dollars for students and campuses.
