"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
Indeed it's the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead

Our Model

Justice Travel is bridging travel and human rights advocacy

Generating US$7.6 trillion in annual GDP and 1 in 10 jobs worldwide, travel is an industry with transformative potential. We want to see its potential harnessed - not for more luxury cruises and resorts - but instead focusing that potential to help those fighting for justice around the world.  Our model is dynamic and innovative, combining elements of a niche travel company and a strategic advocacy organization. We want to help our partners make substantive changes in their countries, using both the financial resources from sharing profits on our tours and the international networks our travelers and broader community help them build. This goes beyond awareness raising to help win real victories, and using our strategic resources to respond quickly to changing contexts.  In addition to our advocacy work, Justice Travel tours also employ local tour operators, local guides, and locally-owned hotels with decades of impeccable safety and sustainability records. We ensure that the local economy benefits first and that the local environment is protected.

Advisory Services

Making tourism work for everyone

In addition to our globally recognized tour products, our company also provides advisory services to actors aiming at shaping positive change through responsible tourism. We tap into the talent, experience and passion of our team for human rights and development to undertake deep analysis of local dynamics, creating new knowledge and spreading innovative approaches to tourism. Our team includes experts in responsible tourism, inclusive development, design for good, local governance, and global communications. Our services include development of pro-justice local tourism initiatives, impact itinerary design, training design and delivery, and analytical research around human rights and tourism.

 

Our Partners

Our partners are at the center of everything we do

Justice Travel identifies partners in each country who are building grassroots movements for change, defending and empowering the most marginalized communities, and who are sorely lacking international support. Below a partial list of our partners in Mexico, Guatemala, and Colombia.
