Moving Toward A Just Recovery
The Climate Justice Alliance released the #OurPowerPR report Moving Toward a #JustRecovery: A Frontline Solution, to share best practices and lessons learned. Just Recovery has proven to be a powerful model that creates the foundational and relational networks and infrastructure needed to activate an appropriate grassroots emergency response for immediate recovery, and potentially a long-term rebuild that could span decades. It has also demonstrated that rapid response alone is not enough. This report shares a participatory model of Just Recovery as an effective and innovative tool for climate adaptation that intersects many sectors of the economy including Energy Democracy, Food Sovereignty, rural infrastructure, and community self-determination.

Support Our Power
Organización Boricuá, our partner on the ground in Puerto Rico to fund a Just Recovery for the people of the island.
We are excited to report that our first Climate Justice Alliance solidarity brigade of just transition leaders returned from Puerto Rico with many stories of hope. They met with agro-ecologists and members of the labor movement on the island who are making sure local communities in Puerto Rico take charge of their own recovery.
The CJA delegation visited Proyecto Rizoma and Puerta de Tierra, local urban farms members of Organización Boricuá.
Much of the donations are supporting a wide network of members of Organización Boricuá, our partner on the ground in Puerto Rico. They are working towards prioritizing equity and environmental justice, achieving food sovereignty, self-determination and many other just recovery efforts for the people of the island. That’s the kind of just recovery Our Power Puerto Rico is promoting.
