Thanks for the welcome. I found you through the promotion of an ACIJ seminar and I joined because I am interested in integrating a diverse and plural community focused on the defense of human rights around the world. I am currently participating in spaces dedicated to study and the fight for gender equality.

Hi to everyone! My network’s account is not working, because of this I am introducing myself by email. I heard about ACIJ many times because I study Law here in Argentina but I found this seminar on Instagram. I am really interested in human rights and access to justice. Now I am studying my latest subjects and participating in a researchment group about the right to food safety, agriculture and food-sovereignty. I am really glad to be here.

Hello! Thank you so much for such a warm welcome. I find these kind of forums really interesting and as a lawyer I believe we need to stay connected with differents professionals, activist and volunteers in Human Rights from all over the world which are interested in making a difference. I met this community thanks to the legal empowermenet network of Latin America and by far Im interested in taking a course call “Abogacía Comunitaria y Empoderamiento Jurídico en Latinoamérica” (Community Law and Legal Empowerment in Latin America) but Im willing to see how this forum works. I hope I could learn from other experiences and I believe this is such a great tool to improve and meet other cultures and other ways of conceiving justice and its implementation, from a human rights perspective. Thank you so much and we keep in touch! Maria Eugenia.

Hi everyone, I’m so excited to be part of this platform. I discovered this platform whilst conducting research on a project I’m working on. My country is doing a comparative study on other jurisdictions on how best to recognise and regulate community based paralegals, I am the lead researcher. I’m looking forward to any assistance and insight I might get from you colleagues.

Hola amigos y amigas: Gracias por aceptarme en su grupo. Espero aprender de ustedes y compartir mi gestión comunitaria sobre derechos de los pueblos indígenas.
