Building Hope, Growing Justice

For over 20 years, AJS has worked to reduce violence and make systems stronger in Honduras. Now we're looking forward to the next step of our story - a secure, modest home for justice that will be a symbol of our hope that through our prayers, our dreams, and our work, we can bring about a more just society here in Honduras.

Join us in thanking God for answered prayers!

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.

"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.
