About the Coalition

ABOUT US

Southwest Florida has long been home to, and benefited from, community-based activist organizations. Following the 2016 elections, the number of groups working on social and environmental justice issues in Collier and Lee counties multiplied, and the SWFL Justice4All Coalition was created in response to this sudden burst of local activism. The Coalition now consists of dozens of affiliated groups and serves as a collaboration, information-exchange and networking hub for them.

Since our founding in early 2017, the issues we have tackled together include rising ocean levels, threats to clean water, gun violence, police brutality, labor rights, universal health care, challenges to reproductive rights, systemic problems of racism, ethnic and religious intolerance, and LGBTQ discrimination, among others.

If your organization believes in fighting for social and environmental justice - whatever your political affiliation - you will find a warm welcome at the SWFL Justice4All Coalition.
