Causa Justa::Just Cause

Oakland, CA

Causa Justa::Just Cause was formed in 2010 as the product of three different grassroots organizations (St. Peter’s Housing Committee, Just Cause Oakland, and People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER) in 2015). CJJC fights for tenant and immigrant rights in Oakland and San Francisco.

Mission
“Causa Justa::Just Cause builds grassroots power and leadership to create strong, equitable communities. Born through mergers between Black organizations and Latino organizations, we build bridges of solidarity between working class communities. Through rights-based services, policy campaigns, civic engagement, and direct action, we improve conditions in our neighborhoods in the San Francisco Bay Area, and contribute to building the larger multiracial, multi-generational movement needed for fundamental change.”
