Just Mobile, a project of ACSEJ, is a city-based coalition of forward-thinking citizens engaging neighbors in learning more about how policy impacts our lives. Our goal is to harness our collective voting power to elect Mayoral and City Council candidates who will implement a “Just” agenda that best serves all Mobilians.
OUR AGENDA: We Believe In…
. . . Just Economics
Living wages for all, and a government that empowers citizens to direct and protect our economic lives — without bias based on race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), national origin, age, or disability — for Mobile’s overall economic well-being.
. . . Just Environmental Protections
Citizens’ right to clean water, air, and land, with access to and enjoyment of public lands and water fronts, plus protection from corporate greed that endangers citizens’ public health/safety, diminishing future growth.
. . . Just Law Enforcement
Reinforcing the Police Advisory Panel with subpoena power and other supportive measures to prevent loss of life involving law enforcement.
. . . Just City Budget
Citizen-centered funding that supports social and economic programs aligned with community values that prioritize “the least of these” and enhance a quality of life to make Mobile one of the most livable cities.
. . . Just Education
A free public education that is suited to the needs of the individual child regardless of zip code as an investment in the student as well as Mobile’s pool of citizens, and that all schools receive equitable funding/resources.
. . . Just Immigration
Human dignity of immigrants and refugees, regardless of status or country of origin, and a people-centered approach that “welcomes the stranger” and their families to add their strengths and talents to our city.
. . . Just Healthcare
Medicaid expansion in Alabama and that all citizens have the right to access a healthcare system that is comprehensive and respectful.
