This chapter looks at a range of global justice organizations, including those that are engaged in advocacy work on debt relief, hunger and global poverty. Beginning with the Jubilee 2000 campaign, much of this work has been focused on Africa. Its deepening poverty has directly contributed to growing violence throughout many parts of the continent. As a result, global justice has become closely aligned with efforts to reverse Africa's growing humanitarian crisis through massive infusions of public and private funding into the poorest regions of the continent. The chapter also features several anti-genocide organizations that have formed in response to the ongoing conflict in various parts of Africa. These organizations use innovative organizing strategies that attract large numbers of young adults to work on their issues.

Keywords:   global justice organizations, Jubilee 2000, Africa, global poverty, humanitarian crisis, anti-genocide organizations
