We are a democratic social justice organisation working as part of a global movement to challenge the powerful and create a more just and equal world. We mobilise people in the UK for change, and act in solidarity with those fighting injustice, particularly in the global south. We used to be the World Development Movement.
People at Global Justice Now
Our staff run our campaigns and support our local activists day-to-day. They are responsible to our council for what they do. This council is elected from our members by our members to oversee the organisation’s work.
A timeline of some of our campaign wins
We want to see the democratic control that ordinary people have over their societies expanded. So naturally Global Justice Now members have the ultimate say over what the organisation does.
Three times a year we produce a magazine which keeps our members and other supporters informed about the progress of our campaigns, the activities of our local groups and how others are organising for economic justice around the world.
How we’re funded
The majority of our funding comes from our members, which means we’re free to say what needs to be said, and accountable to our members rather than just to funding bodies or governments.
