Current Initiatives

The Social Justice Initiative (SJI) is an organization that develops and utilizes strategic alliances with organizations that share our mission to co-produce social justice results that surpass any one entity alone. 

We believe in the power of relationships formed through generative dialogue and intentional action. The SJI has been very fortunate to develop these relationships of mutual benefit with many different types of stakeholders throughout the years.

  • Collaborating partnerships share our goals and have complementary skills and strategies. When joining together, we further a jointly determined purpose.
  • With Coordinating partnerships, we convene activities, sponsor events, or deliver targeted services to further compatible goals.
  • With our Cooperating partnerships, we support each other by sharing information and providing support for each other’s organizational activities.
