Advocates for Justice

Charlie Lamento

Advocates for Justice is a bi-monthly podcast that will present the hard facts about the human rights challenges facing our world today from an international legal perspective. We will face each topic with the aim of educating and empowering everyday people. As you become educated and gain basic critical knowledge of how international law is shaping national and local ways of life without consent, you can take practical actions to prevent human rights violations and injustice in your communities.In every episode, we will strive to present credible facts from an objective viewpoint, including opposing views in a respectful/compassionate manner, allowing all of us to learn and understand all sides of the issues. There seems to be growing desperation for objective reporting of the facts, so people can decide for themselves what is true and false. This is our aim. We will also feature conversations with activists and leaders who are actively involved in advancing human rights – including some of the most controversial human rights issues from the frontlines of the war against injustice. Your host, Charlie Lamento is an international human rights lawyer protecting and empowering those who cannot defend themselves against human rights violations and injustice.
