John is a former policeman who seeks to bring accountability and access to justice in the low-income, high-density neighborhoods of Logan Town and Peace Island in Monrovia. With the Accountability Lab’s support he set up a Community Justice Team of trained, local mediators to peacefully resolve disputes and work with the formal justice system to build trust and integrity.
“Through the Community Justice Teams we are building trust at the local level in Liberia after war and Ebola. The Accountability Lab’s support- through mentoring, training, networks, opportunities has helped us improve stability and accountability which is essential for our future”. – John
