Today, in New York, world leaders are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor alongside the 73rd UN General Assembly. The world has come along way in the past 10 years, but we still have a long way to go towards ensuring equal access to justice for all by 2030.

Tell world leaders to fund and protect justice defenders.
We, the world’s justice defenders and citizens, call on world leaders to keep their promise, made at the United Nations, to ensure all people have equal access to justice. Only by funding and protecting grassroots justice defenders can we make justice, not injustice, the norm. The moment is now. It is time to tip the scales towards #JusticeForAll.
The number of signatures will be shared with governments during the UN General Assembly in September 2018.
