Youth Development Grants
Californians for Justice (CFJ) is a grassroots organization formed in 1997 to build power for California's emerging majority of people of color, immigrants, poor people, and young people. CFJ is best known for its work on affirmative action, bilingual education, youth incarceration and family income issues. In 2001, CFJ launched the Campaign for Quality Education, a five-year initiative that seeks educational equity for youth of color, low income, and immigrant youth both at the state and local levels. At the state level CFJ seeks to prioritize education over incarceration, secure adequate resources for all students to go to college, and end the use of high stakes testing as the sole measure of student and teacher performance. At the local level, CFJ chapters in San Jose, San Diego, Fresno and Oakland are engaged in organizing campaigns aimed at reforming school disciplinary policies, promoting college access, improving teacher quality, and increasing student and parent power in the schools. CFJ received a one-year renewal grant of $35,000 to continue its intergenerational education organizing work.
