Type of Support
Social & Economic Justice Leaders Project (SEJ) convenes leaders of member-based power-building organizations to seed a shared understanding of the future landscape and nurture relationships, so when there is a need for aligned action, the movement has the connections, pathways, and “muscle memory” for effective response. SEJ is working to facilitate a leadership cohort — comprising leaders of member organizations and policy shops, as well as those in academia and government — to develop an organizing practice tooled to the long-term campaigns needed to mainstream a post-neoliberal economic paradigm.
