Review for International Bridges To Justice, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked with IBJ for several months, and had the privilege of witnessing its dedicated staff respond to emergency legal rights infringements as well as develop clear long-term strategies to ensure the organization's survival and impact. Both tasks were done with incredible talent and compassion, and while the staff worked very long hours to serve their large base of clients and fellows, I never heard a complaint or even a sigh. Perhaps even more telling of the staff's strength was the organization's ability to customize its relationship with clients and fellows in each of its target countries (more than 9) and provide legal, training, and campaign solutions that effectively served each. IBJ has a very special place in my heart, and I hope it continues to challenge people's stuck notions of what a small organization is capable of achieving! I am indebted to IBJ for making me believe in the impossible.

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

successful awareness-raising campaigns, fundraising, implementation of effective legal training, significant reduction of torture as an investigative tool.

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

hire more full-time employees or establish more training partnerships to help the organization respond even more effectively to the need for legal rights implementation.

Role:  Volunteer & I helped with program management and inter-office communication.
