Arizona State University is a chapter of Global Human Rights Brigades, an international movement of students and attorneys providing legal education and financial resources for vulnerable families to resolve legal challenges. We focus our work with women in remote, rural, and under resourced communities who would otherwise have limited to no access to legal resources. Volunteers facilitate legal clinics with lawyers to provide pro-bono consulting and the financial resources for community members to help resolve cases. nnIn conjunction with our Human Rights Program, Global Brigades also supports communities with healthcare, economic development, clean water and sanitation projects, and uniquely implements these programs in a holistic model to meet a community’s health and economic goals. Our model systematically builds community ownership and collaboratively executes programs with the end goal of sustainably evolving to a relationship of impact monitoring.

Arizona State University Legal Empowerment May 2018 Honduras
May 10, 2018 - May 16, 2018

Global Brigades offers 7-day Legal Empowerment Brigades throughout the year in Honduras. Legal Empowerment Brigades primarily work with rural communities that are under-resourced and largely unaware of their own legal rights. Throughout the week, Legal Empowerment Brigades volunteers shadow Honduran lawyers to provide pro-bono legal consulting to rural communities. A free legal clinic provides opportunities for volunteers to not only receive experience with Honduran legal professionals but also experience first-hand the obstacles to justice and the culture of legal misinformation in rural communities. Volunteers also work to provide capacity building and education-based workshops on various legal concepts to empower communities through education. Additionally, volunteers continue shadowing Honduran lawyers while they gather important information to initiate the process of resolving family legal cases, many of which have been stalled in Honduras' legal system through institutional inefficiencies and the prohibitively high costs of legal services. Between Brigades, Global Brigades’ in-country staff works to secure legal outcomes and provide follow-up to the community.

Arizona State University Human Rights Brigade May 2015 Panama
May 24, 2015 - May 30, 2015

The mission of Human Rights Brigades is to empower rural communities in Panama to overcome the obstacles that often impede the fundamental human right of access to justice through legal counsel and educational workshops. Human Rights Brigades volunteers have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience working directly with Panamanian lawyers to provide pro-bono legal consulting to rural communities. Volunteers will shadow and assist lawyers as they take on cases with individual families and provide legal consulting to community members. By mobilizing student volunteers to connect with these communities on a family-by-family basis, brigades develop sustainable legal support systems in the region while decreasing the number of unresolved legal cases over time. Human Rights Brigades primarily works with rural communities that are under resourced and largely unaware of their own legal rights. Additionally, volunteers provide legal capacity building workshops on various legal concepts to empower communities through education and action. Human Rights Brigades also works to establish and train community action groups, whose aim is to serve and identify the legal needs of the community and to host workshops on fundamental rights while Global Brigades is not present in the community. Between brigades, Global Brigades’ in-country staff works to secure legal outcomes and provide follow-up to the families and community groups.
