JOIN US TO MAKE
A DIFFERENCE

While much of our world is free and prosperous, people in many countries are still being persecuted based on their gender, race, sexual orientation, political affiliation, and religion. People's basic needs are often not met, and they are forced to flee their homes because of conflict. These conditions foster an environment where corruption flourishes and where mass rape, murder, torture, human trafficking, slavery, and other grave human rights abuses are committed with impunity. We at PEJ believe that pursuing accountability is a step toward eradicating these problems, and thus, will allow for a directional transition toward peace and prosperity.
