It’s been hard to watch the news recently. With the growing refugee crisis, rise of populism, increase in vigilante justice, and birth of “alternative facts”, the legal empowerment community is facing huge challenges all around the world. Key allies who have helped support and finance access to justice seem to be turning away. But we must not be deterred. Our community must step up, share our learnings with others joining the fight against injustice, and encourage fresh and innovative thinking to help tackle these new challenges. This is why we are launching a new 12-part blog series, “Resisting Injustice”.

The Women's March, Toronto, January 2016

Over the coming year, we will bring together a collection of voices, from comedians to civil servants to discuss why now, more than ever, we need to prioritize giving all individuals access to justice and how best we can do this together. In the first post, Namati policy director Stacey Cram explores six ways to resist injustice. Read it by clicking here, and share your thoughts and reflections below.
