Across the globe, grassroots organizations are combatting injustice by helping people to understand, use, and shape the laws that affect them. Few of them receive the recognition they deserve. We want to change that. 

In 2015, Namati launched the world’s first competition to celebrate great deeds in the field of legal empowerment. This year, the biennial Grassroots Justice Prize returns -- bigger and better than before. 

The 2017 Grassroots Justice Prize will highlight the inspiring work being done around the world to put the power of law in people’s hands. Each winner will receive US$10,000. 

The Elders, UNDP, and the World Justice Project are partnering with Namati to support the global promotion of the prize as well as the selection of the shortlisted candidates and the winners. 

​The deadline to apply for the 2017 Grassroots Justice Prize competition is ​Friday, November 24th.
