COVID-19: We've created a new online space for grassroots justice groups to discuss how to adapt and respond to the pandemic. Explore it here.
The movement for legal empowerment is thriving on every continent in the world. But too often, we work alone, without benefit of the advice or feedback of others doing groundbreaking work. Let’s do something about that.
The Legal Empowerment Network is offering practitioners an opportunity to meet and learn from each other in person. Participants in this program will take part in an extended exchange trip, with travel and accommodation expenses covered by Namati, during which they will learn from leading organizations in the field about addressing common challenges and improving legal empowerment methods. Through practical, hands-on learning, we will strengthen our community of practice and our movement as a whole.
