The Justice Project empowers young people, particularly women and LGBTQ individuals, to embrace their identities and advocate for social justice within their communities.
Since we were founded in 2015 we have mobilised thousands of people in online campaigns. We have called on the President of Cyprus to apologise for sexist remarks and on the Cypriot parliament to repeal a decision to introduce an annual commemoration of the 1950 referendum for “enosis” with Greece.
In Nicosia, we have held a photography exhibition documenting the perceptions of women in Cyprus and established a network of student ambassadors across several secondary schools.
Our project has been featured twice in the biggest Cypriot daily newspaper, I Simerini.
