COVID-19 Grassroots Justice Fund – Final Report

The Fund for Global Human Rights is pleased to provide this final report for the COVID-19 Grassroots Justice Fund. Officially launched on July 18th, 2020 – Nelson Mandela Day – the COVID-19 Grassroots Justice Fund was a collective initiative of Namati, the Legal Empowerment Network, The Elders, the Justice For All campaign, and Pathfinders for Peace, Just and Inclusive Societies, hosted by the Fund for Global Human Rights.

The COVID-19 Grassroots Justice Fund was designed to provide emergency support to members of Namati’s Legal Empowerment Network, a global community of 2,800+ grassroots justice organizations from over 170 countries. Intended to support and resource grassroots justice defenders on the frontlines of response to the injustices imposed and aggravated by the pandemic and the resulting crises in their local communities, the Grassroots Justice Fund ultimately awarded over $880,000 in direct grants to 60 organizations.
