Event: Strengthening the Global Movement for Grassroots Justice

More than half of the world’s population lacks meaningful access to justice. Grassroots justice defenders are helping to close this global justice gap by helping communities around the world know, use, and shape the law. They are building community power to drive systemic change, and advancing the goal of more peaceful, just and inclusive societies (SDG 16).
