Encyclopedia > Pan Purple Coalition

The Pan-Purple Coalition or the Alliance of Fairness and Justice (AFJ) is a social activist umbrella group based in the Republic of China on Taiwan. The coalition brings together nine social welfare organizations and promotes the causes of the underprivileged. It supports progressive taxation, a national social welfare system, education reforms, and gender and ethnic equality.

Its name is a reference to the Pan-Blue Coalition and the Pan-Green Coalition, two political coalitions also based in Taiwan. The Pan-Purple Coalition has accused Pan-Blue and Pan-Green for causing ethnic rifts running along the issues of reunification and independence and has rejected overtures to join either group.
