Through collective action, our members strengthen our movement and fight for a fairer, greener world.
Powered by Network members, the Justice for All campaign advocated for financing and stronger protections for grassroots justice defenders. Together, we unlocked new sources of funding and achieved policy changes at the national level.
While the campaign has ended, our work is not over. We continue the fight by ensuring that grassroots voices are prioritized in high-level policy spaces and in the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development agenda.
Our upcoming e-learning course shares key lessons learned from the campaign about advocating for funding for grassroots justice work. Pre-register for the course now.
Justice in the African Union (AU) 2063 Agenda
Legal Empowerment Network members in Sub-Saharan Africa are calling for a justice target in the next ten-year phase of the AU 2063 agenda, alongside demands for increased financing and recognition of community-based paralegals in the continent.
Ibero-American Access to Justice Agreement
Network members in Latin America have been advocating for the last 3 years to build regional norms on people-centered justice that center legal empowerment. The Conference of Ministers of Justice of Ibero-American Countries (COMJIB) has opened a process to build those norms engaging civil society participation.
Over the last few years, Network members have been working on building a common understanding and defining priorities to improve access to justice in the region.
Land and Environmental Justice
Network members are coming together to call for systemically harmed or marginalized communities to have control over the land where they live. This includes fighting for communities to be able to decide what happens on their land and have access to the resources, information, and security necessary to be able to do so with confidence.
