The mission of Social Justice Leadership (SJL) is to help usher in the transformation to a just society by catalyzing a new generation of individuals and organizations to lead a renewed social justice movement. SJL works with grassroots organizations across the country to develop and implement Transformative Organizing, a new framework for social change. We believe that Transformative Organizing (TO) can both change the basic approach and assumptions of social justice organizing, and greatly expand its impact. TO promotes a long-term view of fundamental social change:
- Transformative Organizing seeks to liberate society from oppressive social, political, and economic systems and structures.
- It equally seeks to liberate individuals from the personal suffering of stress and anxiety that so often manifest in our lives, our interpersonal relationships and our leadership.
