"Japanese legend has it that

that your greatest wish

will become a reality

if you build

a thousand paper cranes".

Build your "paper crane".

Sadako Sasaki was only 12 years old when he was diagnosed with Leukaemia as a result of the irradiation that produced the bomb in Hiroshima.

Her friend Chizucho told her this ancient legend that said that, if you want something with a lot of strength and you build 1,000 paper cranesthe gods they will grant you that wish that you long for.

Wanting to be cured of her terrible illness, Sadako began to build the 1,000 cranes. But died before he could finish them.

Their friends continued their mission and completed the thousand cranes, with the hope that wars will be avoided in the future. and peace is achieved among all the countries of the world. 

Since then, the slogan of creating paper cranes in the fight against the
for peace, has added further value to that ancient Legend

The Sadako's beautiful story has inspired the design of the current logo of our Foundation.A particular interpretation of the symbol of the dove of Peace, inspired by this origami crane, whose olive branch symbolises our acronym: FxJ.

At 1994, 29 years ago! a group of professionals in the field of Justice we gathered around a common purpose: the certainty that it is it is politically possible, politically profitable, socially demandable and ethically essential to commit to a different, committed, accessible and accessible justice system.. Today we continue to work for fight any kind of injustice.
