The Just Transition Alliance is a 501(c)3 organization based in San Diego, California. It was founded in 1997 as a coalition of environmental justice and labor organizations. Together with frontline workers, and community members who live along the fence-line of polluting industries, we create healthy workplaces and communities. We focus on contaminated sites that should be cleaned up, and on the transition to clean production and sustainable economies.
The Just Transition Alliance is a coalition of labor, economic justice activists, environmental justice activists, Indigenous people and working-class people of color. The organizations that comprise Just Transition Alliance are the Asian Pacific Environmental Network, Canadian Communications, Energy, and Paper Workers International Union, Farmworker Network for Economic and Environmental Justice, Indigenous Environmental Network, Northeast Environmental Justice Network, Southwest Network for Environmental and Economic Justice, and the United Steel Workers of America. Together, the Just Transition Alliance embodies the process of people of color, Indigenous peoples, workers, and unions in polluting industries in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. addressing environmental and economic justice issues together.
