Bio - CESJ

Established in 1984, the Center for Economic and Social Justice (CESJ), headquartered in Arlington VA, is a non-profit 501(c)(3), all-volunteer educational center, grassroots think-tank, and social action catalyst. CESJ’s mission is to advance liberty and justice for every person through equal opportunity and unencumbered access to the means to become an owner of productive or creative capital, i.e., income producing property. Indeed, CESJ is a founding member of the emerging Global Justice Movement.

CESJ members are part of a growing global network of citizen activists, servant leaders, and social entrepreneurs in business, labor, government, religion, and academia. They come from different backgrounds, countries, and faiths; however, they share a vision of human freedom and empowerment based on the doctrine of the intrinsic value of human beings and universal moral principles. Membership in CESJ is open to all who share their Core values and Code of Ethics.

The CESJ Plan

CESJ has designed the Capital Homestead Act as a national economic agenda of monetary, tax and expanded ownership reforms to enable every person to become an owner of income-producing property. Capital Homesteading starts by lifting unjust barriers to equal economic freedom, opportunity and power through ownership of productive or creative property as a fundamental human right. It then restructures monetary, tax and other basic institutions to create new money and interest-free credit to finance broadly owned, sustainable, private-sector growth through vehicles like Capital Homestead Accounts, Citizens Land Banks, Homeowners Equity Corporations, and Justice-Based Employee Stock Ownership Plans. 

CESJ’s Justice University

CESJ is currently organizing and seeking funding for “Justice University,” an online, interactive “global classroom” to promote basic understanding of the principles of economic justice and other natural rights and virtues, most immediately, the three interdependent principles of economic justice, Participative Justice, Distributive Justice, and Social Justice. Justice University will grow and evolve as a national and global partnership of educational, community, and business institutions in an effort to rebuild the shambles that is modern academia.

CESJ’S “Just Third Way” Perspective

CESJ believes that a free and just social order begins with the dignity, sovereignty and development of each human being and that political democracy must rest on a foundation of economic democracy (“every citizen an owner”). Particularly significant is the fact that CESJ has republished a “Just Third Way Edition” of Ven. Fulton J. Sheen’s “long lost” 1940 book Freedom Under God which provides a strong motive of credibility for a direct relationship, and therefore a point of leverage, between political and social freedom and economic freedom. Along with the Catholic Church, CESJ believes there is a “just third way”.
