"What if this political opening were a reminder that we are not supposed to be investing so much on the few who openly oppose us . . . What if this were a moment to focus less on their power, their privilege, and their resources, and, instead, an opportunity to double down on our own?" -Mario Lugay, Sr. Innovation Director, Justice Funders, from "The Glorious Pull of Political Openings"

A Just Transition calls on us all to participate in collective action, both within and between communities–of people, organizations, and movements and philanthropy–to reimagine and remake the world. Justice Funders’ Community and Funder Collaborations, as well as our Movement Commons Culture and Collective Action Lab, are two ways we participate in and facilitate collective action.

Community and Funder Collaborations

Justice Funders works to shift power and resources by supporting hosts Community and Funder Collaborations between frontline movement organizations and funders that center movement strategies and democratic control of resources.

Movement Commons Innovation & Collective Action Lab

Justice Funders puts our values into practice through our Culture & Collective Action Lab. We partner with philanthropic and movement leaders to design, pilot, and scale both innovation and collective action that advance social movements.


The Justice Funders office is located on the unceded land of the Lisjan Ohlone people, now known as the East Bay in the San Francisco Bay Area. To move towards being in right relationship with the Lisjan Ohlone people, Justice Funders encourages our members and the larger Bay Area philanthropic community to pay the institutional Shuumi Land Tax to support the critical work of the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust to return Indigenous land to Indigenous people.
