(TUCSON, AZ) Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ) and 140 of our fiscally-sponsored projects have become the right-wing media’s latest smear campaign. Their dangerous attempts to de-platform, disparage, disenchant, and debate our organization’s values, experiences, and work has caused the company that handled AFGJ’s credit card donations to cave to false and dangerous accusations, blocking AfGJ and 140 of our projects from using this critical fundraising tool. AFGJ continues to be immovable in our commitment to growing and supporting movements for liberation and justice worldwide, including advocacy and centering of the rights of the Palestinian people.
“The organizations we work with to create real, sustainable, just change refuse to back down, even when things get tough. We cannot afford to fail. We have seen what it looks like when the forces of oppression prevail”, said Camille Landry, National Co-Coordinator of Alliance for Global Justice.
AFGJ reaffirms our dedication to people-centered solidarity: from our support of the Palestinian people who struggle for national liberation and against unjust occupation, to our work for immigration justice and human rights for all. In fact, we’re more committed than ever to push back against the forces of imperialism and repression. We’re excited to announce the launch of our resistance campaign, which will roll out soon.
Alliance for Global Justice’s mission is to achieve social change and economic justice by helping to build a stronger, more unified grassroots movement. We recognize that the concentration of wealth and power is the root cause of oppression requiring us to work together across ideologies, issues and communities. AFGJ nurtures organizations seeking fundamental change in international and national conditions that disempower people, create disparities in access to wealth and power, poison the earth, and plunder its resources.
AFGJ supports locally-based grassroots organizing by sharing political analysis, mobilizing for direct action, monitoring the centers of corporate and government power, expanding channels of communication, and sharing skills and infrastructure. AFGJ’s commitment to solidarity and fighting de-platforming enables us to continue to show up for justice and truth within the movement.
