Justice: Most governments support an economic system that puts profit and unlimited growth above the vital needs of people and the planet. We believe in the need for transformative change based on the principles of justice and democracy in the absence of true leadership by governments.
Solidarity: We work in solidarity with Indigenous Peoples, migrants and racialized people, regardless of status, and those who face social, economic and environmental injustices.
Independence / Non-Partisanship: We operate without a penny of corporate or government money. Our work is sustained by the generous donations of our supporters and members. This financial independence allows our advocacy work to be direct and uncompromising.
Democracy: We are a grassroots organization built on democratic principles. These principles provide an open membership and give all members a voice and vote in our organization. We are accountable to the groups we work with and to the frontline activists and communities we support.
