Urban Justice in Liberia

The Carter Center’s community justice advisors (CJAs) are bringing free legal services – and awareness of how the law should work – to urban slums in Liberia’s capital, Monrovia.

In this video, we follow advisor Stephanie Sayeh as she visits client Massa Sherriff in Peace Island Township, home to many who were forced to flee during Liberia’s long civil conflict that ended in 2003. Massa’s child custody case highlights how community-based approaches are needed to support the post-conflict justice system, and how The Carter Center and its partner, the Catholic Justice and Peace Commission (JPC), are working to bring legal services to marginalized populations.
