Jill (VanBeek) Stoltzfus, AJS Executive Director, reflects on the hope of justice healing Honduras.

On November 29th, 2018, seven men were convicted of murdering Honduran activist Berta Cáceres. We're looking back at the history of the case, as well as the causes Cáceres stood for during her life. 

AJS released a new online tool that allows anyone to discover the real owners behind businesses. Investigations made using this tool have uncovered corruption in solar energy contracts, and fraud in public contracting, evidence that AJS was able to bring to light.

Pray with Jo Ann Van Engen, AJS Co-Founder, as she reflects on the migrant caravan walking north and the renewal of systems in Honduras.

THE LAWYER. Chapter 5 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. AJS lawyers represent vulnerable victims pro bono, and sometimes advocate for years as cases slowly move forward. In this way, they achieve victories in individual cases, but also show both citizens and officials that no case is too difficult to achieve justice.

Please pray with us this month!

"How to Solve a Murder in Honduras," a special series from AJS that tells the story of how criminal investigators, lawyers, police officers, psychologists, information analysts, and victims are working together to end violence in Honduras.

THE WITNESS. Chapter 1 in the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. Brave witnesses are crucial to convicting murderers in Honduras. Some of these witnesses later become community informants, providing Peace and Justice staff with important information and insight about crime in their neighborhood, and helping to solve even more cases.

THE INVESTIGATOR. Chapter 2 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. Investigators with AJS’s Peace and Justice Project accompany police officers as they investigate a crime. Perhaps most importantly, they act as a trusted bridge between victims and authorities, giving witnesses the confidence to report crimes and share their testimony.
