Who We Are

Journey for Justice (J4J) is an alliance of grassroots community, youth, and parent-led organizations in over 30 cities and growing across the country organizing to win Community-Driven alternatives to the privatization of and dismantling of public school systems. We are an Organization led by Black and Brown parents, students and families centered in racial, social, and education justice. One of our key goals is to support and grow Black and Brown Organizers and organizations.

We are organizing in our neighborhoods, cities, states and across the country for an equitable and just education system. We envision a public educational system that respects the potential of all children and the rights of parents, youth, and communities to participate in all aspects of planning and decision-making. We believe in a world-class education for all children regardless of their race, social class, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, language, ability and immigration status.
