Combating Climate Crisis

The Social Justice Co-operative is building a grassroots movement centred on creating caring communities and fostering friendships between activists based on caring for each other. We believe in the dignity and value of every human being. We call this movement a “Revolution of Care” because revolutionary care is the antidote to capitalism, and it is capitalism that has made our society sick.  Where capitalism relies on greed to function, the antidote must be generosity. Where capitalism relies on individualism, the antidote must be community.

Sex Workers Rights

Expressing solidarity with sex workers & sex worker rights

We, at the Social Justice Co-op, stand with sex workers and push for a system that no longer polices our bodies. In celebration of International Sex Worker Rights Day, we shared a video on "Stories of Sex Worker Solidarity".
