Jamaicans for Justice (JFJ) is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-violent volunteer citizens’ rights action organization founded in 1999 . The organization operates a range of programmes to promote good governance and advance the rights of all Jamaican citizens by improving public sector accountability and promoting human rights awareness. It is involved in public education, policy and legal advocacy. It works with victims whose rights have been breached by members of the security forces, in cases ranging from unlawful search or detention, to excessive use of force and extra-judicial police killings, In addition, JFJ offers a free library of human rights, legal, social and political literature for the public to access. Jamaicans for Justice works independently and also collaborates with other like-minded local and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community based citizens’ groups such as the Independent Jamaican Council for Human Rights, Amnesty International, The Carter Center, and the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative.
