Justice in Motion protects migrant rights by ensuring justice across borders, through a network of human rights defenders across Mexico and Central America.



Presence in: Canada, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, United States
Focus: Other

Justice in Motion protects migrant rights by ensuring justice across borders. In the face of overwhelming legal and practical barriers, many migrants who have suffered exploitation or abuse at the hands of employers or government officials give up their rights after leaving the United States. Other migrants who flee abuse, violence, and persecution are unable to remain in safety due to lack of evidence to support their claims. These migrants need “portable justice”: the right and ability to access justice across borders. Justice in Motion is dedicated to securing portable justice through legal, educational, and policy initiatives in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Central America. Essential to this transnational model is our Defender Network, a unique partnership of on-the-ground human rights organizations in Mexico and Central America. Justice in Motion makes sure that wherever migrants go, their rights will follow.

I am a program associate and development manager for Justice in Motion. We are a US-based organization that works with a network of lawyers and non-lawyer advocates in Mexico and Central America, to make sure that migrants have access to justice wherever they go. We are especially hoping to connect with people/organizations who work with migrant and immigrant populations, who work on labor and human trafficking issues, and who are interested in cross-border justice solutions more broadly. We would also love to learn about people’s experiences managing networks, participating in networks, and making complex collaborations work.
Isabelle Barnard is the network champion (main point of contact) for Justice in Motion.
