Brandeis University Legal Empowerment April 2021 Honduras

Apr 05, 2021 - Apr 11, 2021
Global Brigades offers 7-day Legal Empowerment Brigades throughout the year in Honduras and Panama. 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 the Honduran legal system through institutional inefficiencies and the prohibitive high costs of legal services. Between brigades, Global Brigades’ in-country staff works to secure legal outcomes and provide follow-up to the community.
