What We Do

Community Organizing and Training

We approach community organizing from 2 different angles; supporting local member organizations so they can win campaigns in their community and expressing our power nationally to impact federal education policy. We aid local organizing through technical assistance and helping to nationalize local fights; that is bringing national attention to local issues. J4J is led by a coordinating committee and a national director with decades of experience in community organizing, so we utilize that collective experience to provide our member groups training in pertinent areas such as; base building, strategy, power analysis, racial justice, coalition and alliance building and intergenerational organizing.
