About /What is Global Justice?

  • A vision.
  • An organization.
  • A movement.

Young people have the unique capacity to reach across false boundaries of nationality, race and economic status to affirm our common humanity and work toward a shared vision. By uniting the creative energy and courage of young people with the knowledge and expertise of academia and professionals, Global Justice (GJ) empowers youth and students to be informed activists. Today there exist greater linkages between nations and across continents than our planet has ever known? a truly global exchange of people, of ideas, of goods and services. Yet we live in a world that faces an ever-increasing divide between rich and poor. As the face of communications, business, and international relations changes, so must our commitment to ending this disparity. Making globalization work for all?particularly the poor?represents the greatest challenge of our generation.

To work towards this end, Global Justice operates on two fronts:

On the one hand, Global Justice acts as the umbrella organization for a growing number of student advocacy campaigns aimed at promoting a more responsible and engaged US foreign policy. Each of these campaigns operates through a national steering committee and chapters organized on a campus by campus basis, with chapters engaging in independent projects as well as participating in collective national initiatives. To date Global Justice has been the flagship for two functioning campaigns, the Student Global AIDS Campaign and the Student Campaign for Child Survival.

In its other incarnation Global Justice works to promote greater cooperation within the broader student advocacy movement for global justice, seeking to unite a fragmented movement of like minded individuals into a more cohesive whole, better able to mobilize resources to create change. This involves organizing concrete, cross-organization, advocacy efforts, but also acting as a venue for promoting informed advocacy through trainings and support for infrastructural development.
