Cross-Border Network Mission Statement:
Economic globalization, driven by unaccountable transnational corporations and an ethic of competition, is driving down living standards of workers around the world, despoiling communities, and weakening institutions which foster democracy and protect human rights.
The Cross-Border Network for Justice and Solidarity believes that an alternative to this type of globalization must be created by building international bridges of solidarity and mutual aid between workers and communities of working people. We educate and organize for social and economic justice by connecting workers and communities across borders and who cross borders.
