About Our Client

Causa Justa :: Just Cause (CJJC) is a multi-racial, grassroots organization building community leadership to achieve justice for low-income San Francisco and Oakland residents. In 2010, CJJC emerged from the strategic collaboration of two powerful organizations: St. Peter’s Housing Committee and Just Cause Oakland. These two organizations represent more than 30 years combined experience working toward housing and racial justice for African Americans and Latinos.

CJJC has a multi-faceted approach to fighting for social justice. They provide tenant rights advocacy and information to tenants through their Housing Committee/Tenants’ Rights Clinic. They build their membership through recruitment in the tenants’ rights clinics and through neighborhood door knocking and outreach. They fight grassroots campaigns to win immigrant rights and housing rights and work toward building a larger movement for social transformation.

We designed and built CJJC’s organizational website in 2010 and re-parterned to build this tool site in 2020 that provides tips & tools for Oakland tenants to organize with neighbors.
