Sharing what we’ve learned
From action comes learning. From learning comes knowledge. Drawing on our historical roots and nearly 20 years of sustained work with social movements around the world, JASS produces research designed to support activists, inspire allies, educate policymakers, and inform donors. We hope these resources spur smarter thinking and more strategic responses to inequality, and help others build a multiracial and ecologically sound future.
JASS feminist movement-building is powered by big ideas – progressive principles and approaches in action to understand and transform society through collective action. These include: Power, Feminisms, Intersectionality and others. Stay tuned for these soon.
From theoretical analysis to handy training tools, we’re constantly updating our library. We invite you to access updated materials on the latest issues and our unique perspective and methodology.
