Coalition for Justice in the Maquiladoras- San Antonio, Texas
CJM is an international, non-profit, non-governmental coalition composed of organizations from religious, labor, environmental, community and women’s groups in Mexico, the United States and Canada. Fundamental to the coalition’s mission is a commitment to democratic processes and coordinated action among CJM members working together in the struggle for a better quality of life, sustainable development, social justice, human rights, and environmental stability in the communities where maquiladora workers live. We place special emphasis on defending the rights of women in the maquiladoras who suffer discrimination, humiliation, and sexual harassment in the workplace. Our actions are carried out wherever transnational corporations violate workers’ rights and adversely affect their communities by destroying their cultures and traditions and polluting the environment.
