On the Issues

We use the tools of community organizing to address the root causes of oppression.  JALSA pulls together broad-based coalitions. We reach out to a cross-section of religious, racial, labor, professional and grassroots groups with common goals.


For JALSA, the development of trust and working relationships among coalition members has been key to our success. Our uniquely diverse network puts us in a strong position to effect change.


Our priority issue areas include: economic justice, affordable housing, climate change, criminal justice reform, immigration, and gun violence prevention.
