How Legal Empowerment Groups are Responding to the Pandemic

During our COVID-19 Justice Challenge, legal empowerment groups shared stories from the frontlines of the pandemic. Their experiences paint a vivid picture of what’s happening on the ground.

We’re seeing that, in the shadow of the pandemic, injustices are deepening. But that’s no cause for surrender. Around the world, grassroots justice defenders are adapting and innovating to respond to people’s needs. There is a lot we can learn from this experimentation; we’ve highlighted some useful tips for practitioners in our analysis.

Three key takeaways are particularly relevant to the future direction of our network and the Justice For All campaign.

Taking direction from the above, the Legal Empowerment Network, which Namati convenes, is reiterating its commitment to raising funds and developing skill-building opportunities for members over the course of the pandemic.

We have some exciting developments on the horizon on both these fronts. Stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks—things are moving fast. We know that our members and communities need help and are working hard to rise to the occasion.
