JASS is dedicated to strengthening the voice, visibility, and collective organizing power of women to create a just, sustainable world for all. Our feminist movement-building and popular education strategies combine innovative learning, organizing, communications and action that equip and energize activists, expand alliances and mobilize women’s movements for greater political influence and to ensure the safety of activists in an increasingly risky world.
Founded in 2002 as a community of practice by activists, popular educators and scholars from 13 countries, JASS generates cutting-edge knowledge about power, movements and change to shape the theory, practice and policies for advancing women’s rights and democratic change. Working with women and diverse organizations in 27 countries, JASS’ agile regional and international structure and processes are designed to support grassroots organizing as well as local-to-global solidarity and action, placing frontline activists and agendas at the heart of our social justice work.
