In early 2018, Justice for All announced the creation of a new partnership to educate people about the genocide faced by Rohingya of Burma and the crimes against humanity faced by other Burmese ethnic groups specially Kachins and Karens. We started out as an effort by Muslim, Christian, Jewish and Buddhist faith leaders with the name “Faith Coalition to Stop Genocide in Burma.” Now, having expanded our purview to other causes beyond Burma, we are have been renamed the “Faith Coalition to Stop Genocide.”

An NGO with Consultative Status at the United Nations (DPI), Justice for All is an Illinois registered nonprofit organization with its main office based in Chicago, with staff and volunteers in Washington DC, New York, Boston, Houston and other locations. The organization, which was incorporated in 1999, grew out of advocacy efforts on the human rights abuses experienced in Bosnia and later Kosovo during the break-up of the former Yugoslavia. At that time, it was instrumental in shaping the discourse around the ‘genocide’ debate and campaigned to declare rape as a war crime in international law.
Justice for All currently oversees several grassroots, media, and advocacy campaigns to address issues that do not receive enough international, public and political support. It does this by working with a dedicated in-house staff as well as a team of D.C. and media industry consultants to initiate and advance legislation that will benefit impacted communities around the world. It also sparks grassroots advocacy campaigns and maintains a steady presence as an audible voice at the United Nations.
The objective of every Justice For All campaign is to safeguard the fundamental human rights of at-risk or impacted communities by reinforcing the universal human rights framework as articulated in the Geneva Convention and respect for international law as laid out in the charter of the United Nations. By so doing, Justice For All works to preserve the basic claim to human rights of individuals everywhere.
Justice for All is funded by a broad range of faith community donors who take a keen interest in the furtherance of human rights both in the United States and outside its shores. Its broad mandate is to educate fellow citizens on social justice concerns and provide guidance for action through regular newsletters and extensive media engagement.
