||The Asociación Civil por la Igualdad y la Justicia (ACIJ) was established in 2002 by a group of young lawyers to contribute to the strengthening of democratic insitutions, to foster respect of all fundamental rights, and to defend the most vulnerable groups in Argentine society.
ACIJ pursues this mission through a variety of means; by providing legal representation to poor communities whose rights are threatened, by building capabilities and fostering knowledge among young people, by drafting and promoting proposals for the improvement of public policies, by establishing collaborative networks with NGOs, universities, and other civic institutions, and by challenging government misconduct through political and legal action.
