The Alliance for Sustainable Jobs and the Environment (ASJE) was created from the recognition that sustainable communities involve both the conservation of the natural world as well as nurturing the quality of human life. With this understanding, in 1998 we formed an extraordinary and historic labor and environmental alliance to challenge the economic policies that are destroying good jobs and a healthy environment.


Building Strategic Alliances

Corporations have long used “jobs versus the environment” rhetoric to pit natural allies against one another. Until recently, this propaganda kept labor and environmental activists battling each other while corporations continued business as usual—outsourcing good jobs and destroying the environment. Recognizing the tremendous stakes involved, environmental organizations, labor unions, and individuals are working together to challenge that myth and support sustainable jobs for the environment.


Our Restoration Economy program is working to build a living-wage Restoration Economy along California’s North Coast region by advocating for the creation of quality jobs to restore the area’s damaged watersheds, streams, and forests.  A Restoration Economy will result in many ecological benefits to local communities, including cleaner water, healthier forests, and restored native fisheries.


Blue-Green Organizing

There is power in numbers. Neither the labor nor the environmental movement is strong enough by itself to challenge the current assaults to workers and the environment. Together, however, we represent a potent force. As we organize labor unions, environmentalists, workers, and progressives to stand in solidarity, our potential for creating positive social change grows as well.  Solidarity works!  Join the Alliance

What is a blue-green alliance?

ASJE is a blue-green alliance with the board and membership divided between rank-and-file laborers (blue-collar) and environmentalists (green).

Hope flows from the possibility of having the capacity to change the world in which you live. ASJE creates new hope for our future through strategic alliance building to challenge the economic policies that are destroying good jobs in a healthy environment.

The Alliance for Sustainable Jobs and the Environment is a network of individuals and organizations dedicated to building a world where nature is protected, the worker is respected, and unrestrained corporate power is rejected through grassroots organizing, education, and action.
