What is it you're looking for?

The Fair Start Movement is the convergence of
social, eco, and reproductive justice to ensure every child a fair start in life.

The climate crisis and worsening inequality are a threat to children everywhere – with effects being felt most by those communities least equipped to endure it. 

We can change course. Children deserve equitable conditions, right from the beginning. 

Starting Upstream:

THe Most Effective APproach 

 A fair start in life is the first human right – it overrides all others. It is what children are entitled to under the Children’s Rights Convention, and what allows them to eventually be free from the power of others, and truly self-determining.

Ensuring a a fair start is the most effective and just thing we can do with impacts well beyond downstream alternatives. Let’s take back the wealth women and children deserve to make the best future for all. It’s time for truly comprehensive reproductive justice.

Like the actions of fellow billionaire Trump, this move to influence the public with false claims and dangerous propaganda threatens democracy. So what does this have to do with a fair start in life? A lot. Unjust birth conditions are the root of inequality. That inequality allows unjust wealth to flow to the hands of a few. When we ensure equity from...
UN Warns Earth 'firmly on track toward an unlivable world'

“UN warns Earth ‘firmly on track toward an unlivable world”

Speaking about an IPCC report, UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutteres revealed  “a litany of broken climate promises” by governments and corporations that threaten human lives and will costs governments hundreds of billions to confront. Fossil fuels take the spotlight. But that ignores all other growth driven harms like habitat destruction and water scarcity. We can no longer ignore that the quest endless-growth and profits above all has had catastrophic consequences for all life on our...
