The Network Has Spoken – Results of the Annual Survey

In February, the Global Legal Empowerment Network took part in an annual survey to assess where our movement is at and where we need to go.

The results are in, and they tell us a lot.

We are an extraordinary global community—representing over 150 countries. We are united by a common purpose: putting the power of law in people’s hands. But we face real challenges.

Feedback from our members shows that our field is caught in a two-sided crisis.

Many of us are struggling for funding. Sixty-seven percent of respondents either had to make cuts or will not be able to operate in the coming year due to funding concerns.

Our field is also under threat. Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they were threatened for carrying out legal empowerment work.

What should we do about it?

Members voted overwhelmingly to prioritize advocacy on financing and protection for grassroots justice defenders. So we’ve launched a new global campaign, Justice For All.

Together, we are:

Ninety-six percent of respondents said they want to take part in this campaign. We invite you to join us as we #TipTheScales towards #JusticeForAll. Sign the pledge to support and protect grassroots justice defenders everywhere. Become a campaign supporter or join the monthly coalition call.

Our movement doesn’t have to be starved for resources or perpetually at risk. We can change that reality together.
