Coalition for Social Justice Education Fund

The CSJ Ed Fund, based in Southeastern Massachusetts, was founded in 1994 with the mission of advocating for economic opportunity and social justice, particularly for those affected by poverty. Over the years, we have developed a strong leadership core composed of dedicated activists who joined through CSJ Ed Fund's grassroots efforts. 

CSJ Ed Fund engages in comprehensive outreach activities, including door-to-door canvassing in low-income neighborhoods and public housing developments, as well as phone campaigns to inform and mobilize communities on various issues.  

Over the years, CSJ Ed Fund has played a leading role in numerous campaigns, including significant efforts in healthcare, public education, and progressive tax reforms. We led initiatives to pass Earned Sick Time and Paid Family and Medical Leave in Massachusetts. Our current multi-issue agenda addresses vital concerns such as universal childcare, affordable housing, public transportation, environmental justice, civic engagement and increasing the minimum wage. The organization operates primarily in Brockton, Fall River, and New Bedford, with expanded efforts in Taunton, Attleboro, and Falmouth​​​​.
