We work with our members in the Global South, indigenous peoples, women, people of color, and other vulnerable groups by advocating for systemic change to address the root causes of the climate crisis. DCJ has also established itself as the convener of climate justice groups in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, where DCJ makes up one half of the Environmental NGO Constituency.
