Jamaicans for Justice (JFJ) is a non-governmental human rights and social justice organization. Founded in 1999, we provide legal services in response to human rights violations , campaigns for social justice causes, conducts research on human rights and social justice, and works on legislation and policy. JFJ serves hundreds of Jamaicans each year and produces high-impact research and advocacy that shape the national agenda.

Redress and Legal Services

We receive reports of human rights violations primarily by state agents (e.g. police abuse) and provide legal services to victims to receive justice. We operate in courts and tribunals at all levels and work on behalf of marginalized persons.

Policy and Advocacy

We study laws and policies and conduct advocacy to create an enabling environment for human rights, good governance and access to justice

Outreach and Education

We work with people and communities to provide support to people in need, build capacity to protect and promote human rights, and improve knowledge and attitudes.


We conduct research on social justice and governance issues to generate evidence, shape discourse, and impact policy.
