wolterstorff_0.jpg"What has also struck me about [AJS] is their imagination: they imagine new ways of prodding and assisting the government to do what it should be doing, new ways of standing alongside victims," wrote philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff after one of his visits to Honduras to observe the work of AJS.

You can also read a previous reflection from Dr. Wolterstorff's first visit to AJS, in which he shares, "I had witnessed first-hand the work of a thoroughly indigenous organization which, in the name of Christ, defends the cause of the 'downtrodden' and, with great tenacity and courage, both insists that the government bring to justice those who have wronged them and assists government in doing so."

“[AJS] is an organization that we in the United States embassy and the United States government partner with in many very important ways. Their commitment to this process and their commitment to this country is unwavering. I’m just very privileged to have the opportunity to work with them and to be able to support them."

"AJS didn't just join with others in calling for justice, but worked with us the whole time in our investigations that in the end resulted in convictions for Dionisio's killers. .... AJS helps us by giving logistical support and assistance in getting the evidence we need in carrying out our investigations," said former Honduran special prosecutor for Human Rights, Sandra Ponce.

Oscar_Chincilla.jpgAJS’s posture towards the Honduran Attorney General has frequently been critical – but he has also recognized the valuable constructive support that we have offered. “The Association for a More Just Society I believe has taught us a lesson,” said Oscar Chinchilla, Attorney General of Honduras from 2014-2018, “You can sometimes point out things that are bad; but you can also work hand in hand to make changes and advocate for improvement.”

His successor, Rutilia Calderón, said, “The accompaniment of AJS to the Ministry of Education allowed us to have a more integral vision not just of the complexity, but also of the challenges and even gaps that the institution faced in the fight against corruption.”
