JASS ED Lisa VeneKlasen and James Savage of the Fund for Global Human Rights examine how front-line defenders lead the way on the protection of activists and communities in this new article, Power and Safety: Rethinking Protection for Human Rights Defenders.

Rethinking protection for human rights defenders

This new case study by JASS, the ARC, and PEKKA explores how PEKKA, an Indonesian women's network, builds women collective power and turns it into a nation-wide political force, offering a fresh perspective to the field of social accountability.

Grassroots women's perspective on accountability

Together, we raised $2,100 for our allies FAMM Indonesia and Alpen Sultra -a broad-based women's alliance- who will use funds to purchase food, water, shelter, and medicines, and provide childcare, clean-up, and comfort in response to the recent earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Indonesia.

What does it mean to question underlying assumptions and rethink our protection approaches? Together with the Fund for Global Human Rights, JASS offers this exciting multi-media webpage, a contribution to the ongoing discussions on protection and closing space.

Defending Rights in Hostile Contexts

FAMM is a network of 350+ young women activists from diverse movements across Indonesia. See our case study detailing how a grassroots human rights network emerged in a context of closing space and rising fundamentalism.
