The Pan-Purple Coalition (traditional Chinese: 泛紫聯盟; simplified Chinese: 泛紫联盟; pinyin: Fànzǐ Liánméng) or the Alliance of Fairness and Justice (AFJ, traditional Chinese: 公平正義聯盟; simplified Chinese: 公平正义联盟; pinyin: Gōngpíng zhèngyì liánméng) is a social activist umbrella group based in the Republic of China (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 of causing ethnic rifts running along the issue of unification with China vs. independence, and has rejected overtures to join either group despite having organizations which individually had former associations with either group. Ultimately, they are not considered a political faction within Taiwan but rather a group which supports the current status quo situation between Mainland China and Taiwan.
