EJS calls for a broad vision of justice that explicitly acknowledges the interconnectedness between various issues, struggles, and constituencies. We believe that the separation of progressive activists into isolated “silos” hinders a broader progressive movement. With that in mind, we participate in numerous silo-busting efforts as part of our ongoing commitment to building a Grand Alliance among progressive advocates. Our work in this area includes administering the California Civil Rights Coalition, a statewide community of civil rights organizations, activists, educators, lawyers, and advocates representing a wide range of issues and working as one to create a just and healthy society.
We manage several coalitions and frequently sign on to legal and policy initiatives or join as co-counsel onto cases that relate to broader issues of civil rights, including immigrants’ rights and marriage equality.
