We fight for

MAJIC is a coalition of organizations in Michigan that have come together to achieve and actualize Climate Justice for the house of the Great Lakes.

We are a group of organizers, volunteers and professionals creating a sustainable future where the people of Michigan can thrive without suffering the negative physical and economical effects of environmental decline.

be there for each other.

We seek to excise corporate control from our democracy, pushing back and taking risks for systems change, not just climate change.

We commit to collectivity, solidarity, and complicity.

This moment will require all of us to win. Find your lane, name it and fill it.

We commit to appreciating the gifts we each bring and putting measures in place to avoid burnout.

make the biggest tent.

Our work must hold space for, and challenge, those seeking to shift values.

just talk about it.

We will win if we all do the work we commit to doing. 

We commit to leading with solutions, making realistic commitments and communicating when things don’t go as planned.

we walk.

Our work must elevate and demonstrate our dreams and demands. We will beat hate with joyful rebellion.

We commit to being bold, having grace in mistakes, and growing organically.

the
green
new
deal?

the
green
new
deal?

The Green New Deal is a 10-year plan introduced by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Markey to mobilize every aspect of American society toward 100% clean and renewable energy, guarantee a good job to all members of our society, and create economic prosperity for all.

Together with this plan, we can transform our economy and society to foster sustainable, cooperative communities that uphold all rights for all people, in harmony with the earth.
