Journalists for Justice (JFJustice) is a non-partisan project administratively housed by the Kenyan Section of the International Commission of Jurists, ICJ Kenya, established in 2011 to promote the twin goals of:
(a) Combating all forms of impunity arising from the Post-Election Violence that afflicted Kenya in 2008 by promoting a balanced discussion of the international criminal justice system in the media and
(b) Advocating justice and reparations for victims. The project achieves these goals through public information programs on the work of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and other specialist tribunals; media training and outreach programs; radio programs, media monitoring and research, media advocacy, materials development and information dissemination activities and victim support programs.
The mission of JFJustice is: to promote robust public discussion of ways to end the impunity associated with violations of humanitarian law, advocate justice for all victims of international crimes; and, to work with other people of goodwill who share the same values.
