Social Justice Project
Human Rights and Social Justice Project
The Human Rights and Social Justice Project is African Refuge's advocacy arm in the Liberian and international human rights community. We aim to bring the challenges facing the African refugee community here in Staten Island to the attention of New Yorkers and Americans alike. We are also a strong voice for reform and recovery in Liberia, paying specific attention to the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's 2009 report in order to ensure lasting peace and prosperity in Liberia. Finally, we advocate for the peaceful resolution of African conflicts and the institutionalization of justice and democratic society across the continent.
