Our institution NAYMOTE-Liberia Community Justice Advisors (non-lawyers) are doing an amazing job and expanding engagements across Montserrado and Bong counties, they are working in 120 communities, raising awareness on the rule of law, fundamental rights and how to access justice, as well as resolving civil cases.
They are engaging and educating citizens through door-to-door awareness, meetings with community leaders and residents, school awareness etc. CJAs are using the Carter Center training manual to educate citizens about the law, citizens’ fundamental rights and how they could access justice.
Additionally, our CJAs are erecting billboards with legal information across several communities, and distributing Frequently Asked Questions on the rule of law and fundamental rights in their assigned communities.
Thanks to The Carter Center Liberia for funding the Access to Justice: Community Justice Advisors Project.
