End Burma’s use of rape as a weapon of war
Justice For All works to raise awareness of human rights concerns impacting vulnerable minority groups through extensive media outreach and weekly action alerts, organizing rallies and meetings with policymakers. In the USA we have organized work on behalf of the communities of: Flint, Michigan and encouraged support of the protesters at Standing Rock. We have worked to mobilize community participation in support for Paris Accords (UNFCCC) and other environmental agreements.
Justice For All has also worked to promote awareness of Islamophobia. Minority populations in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Burma, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have experienced backlash, compounded with cycles of conflict. Staff have been primarily confronting the gross human rights violations against the Rohingya in Burma.
JFA’s UN Office works to encourage the international community to protect the rights of the Rohingya and other vulnerable minorities, as well as more broadly improve refugee policies and address Islamophobia and other forms of xenophobia. In addition, JFA meets with government and civil society stakeholders to discuss a range of issues from genocide prevention to peacemaking and interfaith relation building. In 2017, we have spoken at a range of UN meetings, such as monthly meetings between the Security Council presidents and civil Society organized by World Federation UNA; engaged with partners in media, NGOs and other UN stakeholders. Justice for All has conducted human rights education around the USA through its partnerships with Radio Islam, Soundvision, and at numerous conferences.
Previously we have also organized panels at the 2015 and 2016 Status of Women (CSW) conferences, organized presentations and public events (for World Humanitarian Day) and spoken at UN Day events organized by the United Nations Association. JFA is a member of the NGO Committee on Human Rights and the NGO Committee on Freedom of Religion or Belief.
