Strategic Advocacy for Human Rights
WHAT WE DO
We fight for justice for and alongside survivors of gender violence. Through formal court proceedings and community engagement, we pursue remedies that satisfy each survivor's needs - including reparations, accountability, and legal reforms. At its core, our work is about eliminating structural violence against women and other marginalized groups by making legal systems fairer and more accessible to them.
WHO WE ARE
We are a women-led team of lawyers, researchers, and activists working to make justice more impactful and accessible to survivors of gender violence. Our team is culturally and geographically diverse with strong ties to the communities in which we work. We are intersectional feminists dedicating to advancing human rights.
Over a decade ago, a group of human rights lawyers came together over a troubling realization: survivors of gender-based violence rarely have recourse to justice that really makes a difference in their lives - if any legal resources are available to them at all. So, we began working informally with other legal professionals to open paths to truly transformative justice in places where it is scarcest. Gradually, we developed additional tools to complement to the legal dimension of our work and provide holistic support for survivors.
