July 2011 – June 2012

In 2011 – 2012 CJA was able to break ground in human rights litigation yet again.  As we entered our fifteenth year, it is clear that we have hit our stride in developing innovative and strategic litigation tactics to address some of the most emblematic human rights crimes of the modern era and give voice to our courageous clients.  This year, we served 200 clients, including 178 torture survivors and 22 relatives of people who were tortured or disappeared.  Our docket includes 15 civil, criminal, and administrative cases against 45 human rights abusers from seven countries: Cambodia, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Peru, Somali, and the United States.

CJA ANNUAL REPORT

January 2007 - June 2008

2007-2008 was a major tipping point for this organization in which the incremental hard work of our attorneys and pro bono network, and the continued willingness of our clients to publicly speak the truth against human rights abuses combined to produce extraordinary results. In May 2008, with the distribution of $580,000 to Haitian torture and massacre survivors, CJA crossed the one million dollar mark in assets recovered from human rights abusers.
