Justice Overcoming Boundaries (JOB)
Building leaders across race, class and geographic barriers in our region.
The mission of Justice Overcoming Boundaries (JOB) is to support and develop grassroots community leadership by empowering lower income and other marginalized, often immigrant and people of color in San Diego with the tools, skills, and resources to shape the public policies that directly impact them, their families, and communities.
What We Do: Leadership Development – Using an intensive, hands-on leadership development model, we train ordinary people to lead their communities and help them act to make truly extraordinary differences. Community Organizing – Working with these leaders we build relationships, facilitate community meetings and help organize local actions to bring positive change at the local, state, and national levels. Advocacy – We facilitate and advocate for public policies that respect the dignity of all people. Currently we are engaged throughout the County in Comprehensive and Humane Immigration Reform, a Right to a Roof, as well as various local justice/civil rights issues. Civic Participation – We partner with other organizations to help people in the areas of Naturalization and Civic Education. We also work to register voters throughout many of San Diego’s immigrant communities. Health and Transportation Equity – We are an active member of local, state and national coalitions trying to advance health access and transportation equity.
