Mission Statement

Just Foreign Policy is an independent and non-partisan membership organization dedicated to reforming U.S. foreign policy through coordinating the broad majority of Americans to advocate their interests and values.

Eventually the United States must move towards a more multilateral approach to foreign relations-one that relies less on raw U.S. military and economic power and more on international law and treaties, co-operation, and diplomacy. Our goal is to accelerate this transition through education, organization, and mobilization of concerned citizens.

Program 1

US Foreign Policy in the Middle East

We are teaming up with author and long-time New York Times correspondent Stephen Kinzer for a 20-stop, cross-country speaking tour in February and March 2008. We will promote real diplomacy, meaning direct, unconditional and comprehensive negotiations with Iran as being in the best interest of the majority of Americans, Iranians, and people in the region. We will educate the public on the dangers of any preemptive military strike on Iran. The tour will launch in Los Angeles on February 7 and reach its finale in Washington, DC on March 6, 2008.

Program 2

Foreign Policy and Human Rights

Ethiopia is among the top five recipients of U.S. aid, receiving annually over 500 million dollars, much of which is military support. Currently our tax dollars to Ethiopia fund regional destabilization, widespread human rights abuses, and mass atrocities committed by the Ethiopian government in the Ogaden that are leading to a humanitarian crisis. The Bush Administration supports the Ethiopian government's brutality because it is a key ally in the "war on terror." Our program on human rights in Ethiopia works to change U.S. foreign policy toward Ethiopia so as to avoid further human rights abuses and stop the looming humanitarian crisis.
