Association for Advocacy and Legal Initiatives is a women-led and women-run human rights organization committed to the protection and advancement of the human rights of women, children and other marginalized communities. With direct field presence in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarkhand and Jharkhand, AALI has been providing technical support to various human rights organisations and groups across India.
Established in 1998, AALI’s ideological framework, rooted in the United Nation’s CEDAW, envisions “an egalitarian system which recognizes women as equal human beings and promotes and protects their social, economic, and political rights guaranteed in the Constitution of India and in the international human rights treaties.”
Based on feminist perspective and human rights approach, AALI believes the law is both a powerful tool to ensure social justice as well as a site for change, hence it works with a multi-pronged strategic framework viz. Advocacy, Access to Justice and Capacity Building.
In keeping with this AALIs core mission is to
Facilitate inclusion of voices from the local level in the national and global discourse on women’s human rights.
