The Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) is a political party in the Republic of Trinidad & Tobago. Its logo is the Scales of Justice. Its current leader is David Abdulah, a former government senator and general secretary of the Oilfields Workers' Trade Union.

The MSJ party contested a national election under the People's Partnership alliance, for the 2010 general elections, but has since parted ways.[1][2][3][4]

In October 2012 the MSJ launched a think-tank called the Foundation for Social Justice, which aims to promote ideals of social justice, equity and participatory democracy through seminars, research, publication, advocacy and campaigns.[5]
