  • Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project inspires and engages in transformative action towards the liberation and restoration of land, labor, and culture. We are rooted in vibrant social movements led by low-income communities and communities of color committed to a Just Transition away from profit and pollution and towards healthy, resilient and life-affirming local economies.

    Our Theory Of Change

    Healthy relationships are the foundation of a healthy home.  At Movement Generation: Justice and Ecology Project our work is rooted in the belief that by bringing ourselves into right relationship with seeds, soil, each other and the ecosystems that hold us, we can create a better way forward.

    It has become clear we face two distinct possible futures:  Economic Transition or Ecological Collapse.  If we stay the current course of a globalized industrial model, collapse is inevitable.  We must, instead, create an intentional pathway – a Just Transition – towards local, living, loving economies.  Movement Generation is working hard to build, secure and defend this Just Transition.

    Politically, the questions of climate change, water security, land security, and food security are inextricably linked to race, poverty and development. Many proposals for environmental protection, historically and currently, have tacitly accepted or overtly promoted the further marginalization of working class communities and communities of color.  Current climate change policy efforts are one example: high-density urban “smart growth” is already fueling gentrification in many cities.  “Cap and Trade” schemes that create pollution markets and give credits to corporations for free currently threaten economy-wide, regressive increases in the cost of food, energy, water, transportation, and housing for low-income people of color.

    To usher in a just and equitable transition towards local living economies, leadership must come from communities on the frontlines of ecological disruption. These frontline communities know that solving one problem while creating another is no solution at all. The new economies that our communities construct must take a holistic approach and foster equity, democracy, and ecological renewal.

    One way Movement Generation is manifesting this TOC is through the development of a Resilience-Based Organizing model.
