The Wits Justice Project wins gold at the Making All Voices Count 2015 Global Innovation Competition. Out of 241 global ideas, Paul McNally’s Citizen Justice Network was one of five finalists who won gold.

The Citizen Justice Network project aims to activate marginalized communities to fight miscarriages of justice. It will train eight community activists across the country in basic journalism and the use of technology. Activists will be sourced from rural areas where platforms for reporting on stories of miscarriages of justice in the criminal justice system are minimal. The project will enrich community radio and online media. It will provide local activists with an opportunity to expose stories not necessarily covered by mainstream journalists, bridging the gap between community and mainstream media. Watch McNally talk more about the project here.
