Using the Law to Secure Social Change

Atlantic’s support for strategic litigation has helped organizations in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, South Africa and the United States successfully pursue legal action resulting in—among other outcomes—racially biased criminal justice practices being declared unconstitutional, advancement of the rights of LGBT people, protection of civil liberties, and promotion of unity in formerly divided societies.

In this section you’ll find reports about grantees’ strategic litigation efforts, including case studies and lessons about how to best use rights, law and litigation to advance social change.
