Waging Justice for Survivors of Human Rights Abuses
All over the world, journalists and defenders of democracy are detained, prosecuted and jailed. Women and girls, LGBTQ+ people and minorities are subject to unfair laws and targeted for abuse. Meanwhile, the perpetrators walk free. George and Amal Clooney created the Clooney Foundation for Justice to combat this: by waging justice, one case at a time.
This initiative monitors trials of journalists, women, democracy-defenders, LGBTQ persons and minorities, and advocates for those who are unjustly imprisoned.
This initiative investigates grave human rights abuses to trigger trials that bring perpetrators to justice.
