The biennial Grassroots Justice Prize competition is the world’s only competition recognizing grassroots organizations and institutions, large and small, across the globe, that are working to put the power of law into people’s hands.
This year, we are offering 3 prizes of $10,000 USD.
The competition will honor the work of non-profits, social enterprises, and public institutions that have demonstrated remarkable innovation, impact, and/or sustainability in their legal empowerment work.
Legal empowerment is about helping people to know, use, and shape the laws that affect them. Eligible projects might use a community paralegal approach to address gender-based violence or may provide legal education on citizenship rights. The key is that they are using legal empowerment to help people overcome injustice in any of its varied forms.
