February 20, 2020 marks the United Nations’ World Day of Social Justice.
In a world of frenetic globalization, fueled by technology and financialization, justice for the oppressed, exploited and persecuted in the world’s societies is just as paramount a concern now as it was in 2008 when the International Labor Organization (ILO) adopted the Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization.
Like the ILO, The Global Pro Bono Bar Association seeks to stand in the gap for those left behind or forgotten in globalization.
Our vision is to empower individual Advocates of Conscience around the world to work together to realize universal human rights, human dignity, and critical public interest advocacy in areas of broad moral consensus. In order to support those negatively impacted by or forgotten in globalization, we transfer the capacity for high-quality, impactful, and meaningful engagement from areas of overabundance to areas of need.
As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people".
