INTERNATIONAL BRIDGES TO JUSTICE
July 21, 2011

Over the 10 years of its existence, International Bridges to Justice has done more to protect and advance the human and legal rights of the average citizen of those countries it serves, through its collaborative and educational approach, than any other organization anywhere. We are led by the Rev. Karen Tse, whose individual idealism and determination have made the most extensive and most beneficial difference in more lives and more countries than any other human rights advocate today. I am truly honored to be a small part of this great mission and to serve alongside some of the best people I have ever known.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have personally witnessed the changes in behavior, language and treatment by the government agents and officials who are charged with enforcing the rule of law in their respective countries, resulting in evolved attitudes on the part of the government and the affected citizenry. Everyone seems to be touched by their experience with IBJ. It is truly amazing to witness the amount of difference that a single mission can make.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide IBJ with more funding in order to expand their work to more countries and reach more governments and people in need.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & On behalf of IBJ, I served on a training mission in China where we lectured to defense attorneys, prosecutors, judges, policemen and jailers, helping them to better serve the people with whom they are in contact.
