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. Currently, the most active program in Justice For All is Burma Task Force which has focused its attention on human rights and transitional justice issues in the South and Southeast Asia region. 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 the last year, we have 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/Burma Task Force is a member of the NGO Committee on Human Rights and the NGO Committee on Freedom of Religion or Belief.
