The JusticeMakers team at International Bridges to Justice in Geneva wishes to congratulate each and every 2012 JusticeMakers Fellow. Reading the applications and meeting the applicants has inspired us all to be more active and courageous citizens of the world.

2012 JusticeMakers Fellows are exceptionally bold and innovative legal activists who have seen their fellow community members mistreated and denied justice in callous and devastating ways. Rather than turn a blind eye to the suffering of their fellow human beings, they have taken action and used all of their creativity and skills to change these untenable situations.

They are solving the problems of access to justice for people living with and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS all over the world: from Mexico to Russia.

We want to congratulate 12 outstanding agents of change, each making a real difference within their local community. We wish you all possible luck in the implementation of your project!
