In 2009, Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project co-led a delegation of U.S. grassroots groups to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. Appalled by the failure of the “Big Greens” to address the root causes of the climate crisis, in 2010, these groups brought others in to form what would later become the Climate Justice Alliance. The purpose was to join forces to leverage the power these community-based organizations had been exerting to stop or reduce the harm from mining, refining, transporting, and power generation operations in their own communities and tribal lands.

Movement Generation is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, less than ten miles from Richmond, California. The just transition strategy framework is strongly informed by the movements that have been forging a new path in Richmond. For that reason, the Richmond case study is lengthier than the others.
