Capacity Building

Capacity building remains the bedrock of the Justice Initiative. We employ customized intelligence, investigative, and operational curriculum at the behest of governments and NGOs across the globe. To accomplish this, the Foundation leverages the expertise of active and retired law enforcement agents to facilitate training and consulting engagements locally and around the world.

Addressing Wildlife Trafficking Requires Specialized Tools | Regional Training | Arusha, Tanzania

October 2023 | Grace Farms Foundation and Lusaka Agreement Task Force organized a regional training for wildlife officers from Kenya, Tanzania, and Cambodia focused specialized tools, like controlled deliveries, that can assist in reducing maritime trafficking of wildlife (including the highly sought after pangolin). The training, attended by Grace Farms General Counsel and Justice Initiative Deputy Director Alina Reynolds, provided mentoring, insights, and a practical exercise on controlled deliveries.

 

 

Policy

We are committed to bringing together global experts and survivors to identify best practices and make recommendations to promote accountability for violations of international law. This work includes the establishment of strategic partnerships to bolster the advancement and enforcement of U.S. federal laws that deter illicit activity related to forced labor and environmental crimes, disrupting profits from these injustices on a national and global scale.

 

 

Advocacy

Our public programming with industry thought leaders and policy experts raises awareness about modern slavery, environmental crimes, and gender-based violence. We leverage our location in New Canaan, Connecticut as a nexus to connect the public with global thought leaders advancing good in the world. Our programs have featured Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Denis Mukwege, former CIA director and retired General David H. Petraeus, and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Nicholas Kristof, among other notable contributors.

The Virtual is Real

December 7, 2022 | Grace Farms Foundation and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) hosted the “Virtual is Real” event with experts in technology, policy, gender-based violence, and government discussed the alarming rates of technology-facilitated gender-based violence (TFGBV) and harassment and the harm they cause. Attendees listened to survivors' online abuse and harassment experiences and the need for better trauma-informed responses, support, and validation of those experiencing online abuse.

 


“By bringing together law enforcement, NGOs, and the private sector to form strategic partnerships, we are forging innovative pathways to combat modern slavery, gender-based violence, and environmental crimes.” 

Rod Khattabi, former Chief Accountability Officer & Justice Initiative Director
