Justice Travel is bridging travel and human rights advocacy.
Justice Travel is moving beyond tourism to allow you to truly engage with your world, going behind the headlines and supporting advocates and activists fighting for human rights around the world. From impoverished small farmers in Zimbabwe to young women organizing sweatshop workers in Cambodia, independent journalists in Mexico to conflict-displaced communities in Colombia, we work around issues that matter, with partners who are brave and committed. Our unique profit-sharing model means that their mission is our mission.
Our first tours will begin in 2018, offering unique travel experiences together with our partner activists, community advocates, and journalists. Traveling with Justice Travel allows you to go behind the headlines to meet the brave women and men fighting for their communities, gain a broader perspective on the world in seeing aspects of the country that most outsiders never will, and join a global community of travelers and activists in your own country.
Are you ready to travel for justice? We are.
