AMICC Welcomes the International Justice Project as its Newest Member Organization

Wanda M. Akin (IJP Co-Founder), Carine Bonduelle (IJP Program Officer), Luc Walleyn (Legal Representative for Victims in Lubanga), Afi Patterson, Esq. (IJP Volunteer), and Raymond M. Brown (IJP Co-Founder) at the 2012 List of Counsel Meeting in The Hague.
AMICC is pleased to welcome its newest member organization, the International Justice Project. The IJP joined AMICC on December 12 and is its 39th institutional member. AMICC is a coalition of NGOs committed to achieving through education, information, promotion and an aroused public opinion full United States support for the International Criminal Court and the earliest possible US ratification of the Court's Rome Statute.

The IJP, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Newark, NJ, promotes and advances human rights through the rule of law. Through transitional justice mechanisms, it also provides holistic support to victims of the world’s most heinous crimes—genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The IJP works across sectors and disciplines and at the local and policy levels to help victims heal and rebuild their lives. This unique and holistic approach incorporates individual criminal justice and accountability, advocacy, human rights, education, and health, and it allows the IJP to have long-lasting, sustainable effects.

The co-founders of the IJP, Wanda M. Akin, Esq. and Raymond M. Brown, Esq. are two of only 50 American lawyers who are List of Counsel at the International Criminal Court. Presently, they represent 11 victims in the Darfur situation and four victims in The Prosecutor v. Omar Hassan Ahmad Al Bashir, the case against the President of Sudan. The IJP supports the victims in this process, reaching out to those interested in participating in the proceedings and also to those who may not qualify for participation. To date, the IJP has identified and compiled data from hundreds of potential victims in the Darfurian Diaspora in Sudan, Chad, Netherlands, and the United States, including Arizona, Indiana, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
