Explores the social justice advocacy function of nonprofit organizations. To do so, it defines more precisely what this function entails and what forms it can usefully take; outlines some of the obstacles that impede its exercise; and suggests some steps that can be taken—by civil society organizations themselves, by foundations, by the business community, and by governments—to encourage its more effective exercise. The statement was developed by participants in the 17th annual conference of the Johns Hopkins International Fellows in Philanthropy program held in Beijing, China in July 2005.
