JusticeMakers is a global community where the best and brightest agents of change in criminal justice and human rights reform come together to share ideas and innovate. Through an annual competition, Justice Makers Fellows are named, trained, and funded.
The 2012 JusticeMakers competition will focus on the advancement of legal reform to safeguard the human rights of those living with and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS within the criminal justice system.
PRIZE: With the support of the Levi Strauss Foundation, International Bridges to Justice will select 12 Justice Makers Fellows, who will each be awarded $5,000 to advance HIV/AIDS legal advocacy within the criminal justice system in their respective communities. The competition’s winners will be announced on International Human Rights Day, December 10, 2012.
The application is due October 26, 2012.
While the JusticeMakers Application is available in English, French, Spanish and Russian, IBJ would prefer to receive applications completed in English. If you are not comfortable writing your answers in English, IBJ encourages you to have a friend or colleague translate your application into English prior to submission. If neither of these options is possible for you, IBJ will accept applications in French, Spanish and Russian as well.
