Waging Justice for Survivors of Human Rights Abuses

We believe in creating a world where human rights are protected and no one is above the law. Justice, like war, must be waged; it doesn’t just happen on its own.

Our Mission

All over the world, journalists and protesters are arbitrarily detained. Women, LGBTQ+ people and minorities are persecuted. Meanwhile, the perpetrators walk free. Amal and George Clooney created the Clooney Foundation for Justice to change this.

CFJ provides free legal support to victims of human rights abuses in over 40 countries around the world. It wages justice to create a world where human rights are protected and no one is above the law.

Our Story

We founded the Clooney Foundation for Justice to hold perpetrators of mass atrocities accountable for their crimes, and to help victims in their fight for justice.
