Justice Action Week!

Justice Action Week is a collaboration project of the Justice Action Mobilization Network and our partners anchoring on the upcoming Earth Day holiday. 

Justice Action Week

Our collective is using the upcoming holiday as an opportunity to bring awareness to environmental and social justice issues. Through cross-promotion, a greater opportunity for attention and exposure, we are asking everyone to come out of our silos and work together. We are placing an emphasis on Education, Mobilization, and Action. We are building momentum and excitement leading into upcoming opportunities in the environmental and social justice communities.
