Justice for All Network: Strategic Plan for Victory
- Build power to transform our nation, by the year 2030, based upon the “Eight Percent Solution” mass mobilization (30-35M), as derived from a study of 1000+ successful revolutions and reform campaigns in 160+ nations over the last century (nvdatabase.swarthmore.edu), starting with a deep-dive study and analysis of the African American-led Civil Rights Movement of 1954 to 1968.
- Work inside, but mostly outside, of legislatures; elect justice-centered populist-progressives to office and recruit JFAN partners to build massive external pressure (hard power) campaigns that are coordinated with inside allies (soft power) through systematically engaged activities: from traditional lobbying to creative pressuring to occupy to direct-action.
- Develop tactics aimed at decision-makers with and/or through their audiences (subordinates in their leadership team, district or state-level constituents, and, where possible, sympathetic donors) to achieve structural change at the local, state, regional, national and global levels.
- Identify *winnable primary and general election contests. Develop effective communication and organizing strategies that address values, identities, evocative language, stories, and policies. Convene monthly meetings of “big tent” participants for purposes of information-sharing, collaboration, and coordination.
