WJP ringing out the year on 3 high notes



The WJP team is gearing up for a jam-packed week of stimulating debates and exciting training workshops. From the 24th to the 26th of November, we’ll be ringing out the year on a high note with three fantastic events.

Citizen Justice Network (CJN) Training

This three-day workshop will kick off on November 24th and conclude on November 26th. The training will bring together ten paralegals from Gauteng, Free State, Mpumalanga, and Limpopo. Over the course of three days, they will be equipped with the necessary skills to investigate and broadcast underreported stories of miscarriages of justice in their respective communities. Find the event’s programme here.

Justice for Breakfast Roundtable –  SpeakEasy: If I Could Do It My Way

 The final Justice for Breakfast session for 2015 will open up space for innovative ideas –  from various stakeholders in criminal justice, civil society, academia, –  that would bring about transformation and solve critical problems in the criminal justice system. With over 60 RSVPs already, the event promises to deliver robust discussions. This roundtable event will take place on November 25th and is in partnership with the Wits School of Governance and the Embassy of Switzerland in South Africa. RSVP to: marche.arends@wits.ac.za

WJP Media training for NGO communicators

On November 26th, we will conclude our series of events with WJP’s media training for NGO communicators. The training aims to foster media and communication skills for development communicators working for NGOs and CSOs, initially offered to members of the Detention Justice Forum (DJF) on whose coordinating committee the WJP sits.
