Justice in Action
September 14 and 15, 2021

Justice in Action has been the pro bono component of the Children's Rights Summit every year, encouraging our CRS community to engage in pro bono work in the areas that are discussed and debated. This year, with pro bono work being all the more vital to our communities, our Justice in Action activity will be a VIRTUAL day of activities that allow anyone to volunteer and do some key pro bono child rights work in different settings.

The event is hosted via Zoom on September 14 and 15, 2021, and all pro bono volunteers are welcome to join. At the Sprint, we will tackle issues including projects related to race, mental health, justice crossing borders, and child welfare. Volunteers will be trained at the start of the day and then divided into small teams to work on specific assignments. See below for projects.

Projects

We will offer a variety of projects. Here are some examples:

  1. Real Rights: A City-By-City Guide for Youth Interacting with Police

  2. Fighting Domestic Violence: Assessing the laws of nations that address the crime of domestic violence in pursuit of international human rights law condemning domestic and sexual violence

  3. Mental Health & Youth Rights: Analyzing Legal Rights for Youth in Mental Health Detention
