Patronage and staff

At 1994, 30 years ago, a group of professionals in the field of justice, daring adventurers of illusion, we come together around a common purpose: the certainty that it was possible, politically profitable, socially required and ethically essential to commit to a different, committed, accessible and close justice.

Today we continue working to combat any type of injustice, after having incorporated into our organization highly qualified professionals from the University, the company, Consumer and User associations and civil society

We are an organization non-profit, independent and non-denominational, which works for the promotion and defense of human rights, both in Spain and in the most disadvantaged countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Our essential function is to denounce injustice and defend opportunities for the restoration of rights and creation of instruments that make a more just society possible

We like to remember our motto, which is stated in that “we want peace and we work for justice” and that inalienable commitment is based on four essential elements:

  • The reasoned conviction of the rights we defend;
  • Coherence from ethics to the chosen values;
  • Its practical implementation, which helps improve people's lives
  • The commitment to the people and communities with which we ally and share aspirations and proposals
