JASS (Just Associates)

About Me: 

JASS (Just Associates) is an international feminist organization driven by the partners and initiatives of its regional networks in Mesoamerica, Southern Africa and Southeast Asia. JASS is dedicated to strengthening and mobilizing women’s voice, visibility and collective organizing power to change the norms, institutions and policies that perpetuate inequality and violence, in order to create a just, sustainable world for all. Founded as a learning community by a group of activists, popular educators and scholars from 13 countries in 2002, JASS generates knowledge from experience, with the intention of improving the theory and practice of women’s rights, development and democracy.

JASS’ interconnected strategies seek to build women’s political influence, ensure their access to resources, and protect their safety as activists. To this end, JASS:

1. equips activists leaders from all walks of life with the confidence, information, skills, strategies and connections
they need in order to organize women for democratic change and to navigate backlash and risky contexts;

2. promotes and sustains grassroots and local‐to‐global organizing to build broad, well‐informed, flexible alliances that
are responsive to urgencies and opportunities as well as rooted in the concrete demands of organized constituencies;

3. maximizes women’s creative use of social media to amplify the visibility, appeal and reach of women’s rights agendas and the role of women’s movements in advancing democracy and justice;

4. produces and publishes knowledge from practice – in multiple formats from videos to analysis and tools – to      

5. enable smarter responses to women’s rights challenges, particularly by human rights and development institutions
and governments.
