The Pan-Purple Coalition (zh-tp|t=泛紫聯盟|p=Fànzǐ Liánméng) or the Alliance of Fairness and Justice (AFJ, zh-tp|t=公平正義聯盟|p=Gōngpíng zhèngyì liánméng) 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 of causing ethnic rifts running along the issues of reunification and independence, and has rejected overtures to join either group.
