Last Chance to Apply for the Grassroots Justice Prize!
Deadline: Sunday, November 26th at midnight EST

Dear Friends,

In 2015, we launched the Grassroots Justice Prize -- the first and only competition to celebrate grassroots organizations around the world that are helping people to understand, use, and shape the laws that affect them.

This year, the biennial competition is bigger and better than before. Each of this year's winners will receive US$10,000 and will be honored at a high-profile ceremony in Argentina alongside the G20, all expenses paid.

The 2017 competition will honor the work of non-profits, social enterprises, and public institutions with three different awards: 

  • The Achmed Dean Sesay Memorial Prize for Innovation
  • The Nomboniso Nangu Maqubela Memorial Prize for Scalability and Sustainability 
  • The Elders’ #WalkTogether Prize for Courage 
Applicants can choose to be considered for one, two, or all three categories. 

A panel of judges will determine the winners of the first two prizes and will shortlist candidates for the third, which will then be put to a public vote.
