Who we are
We are a global community of over 15,000 members from 175 countries. We are justice defenders, activists and organizers, educators, public servants, students, and people with a passion for justice. We tackle a wide range of justice issues, from gender equality to land rights, housing discrimination, statelessness, pretrial detention, and much more. We live and work in solidarity with communities facing injustice.
While we come from different places, we are united by a common approach – a process known as legal empowerment. Through this process, we help communities to understand, use, and shape the law, so that the people most impacted by injustice can exercise their rights and take part in decisions that affect their lives.
What we do
Across the globe, our members are working at the frontlines of struggles for justice, building power in communities where injustice and environmental destruction are concentrated. When we come together, each from our own context, we combine our knowledge and ideas and work as a united movement. As a collective, we gain the ability to unlock solutions to the biggest justice problems and build a world where justice for all is a reality.
