About us

Systemic Justice is a new initiative that will partner with organisations working on racial, social, and economic justice to bring about change through strategic litigation.  

We are the first organisation in Europe that works with community partners on strategic litigation by taking a community-driven, intersectional approach, and that: 

  • is Black-led 
  • has a majority BPOC team 

Systemic Justice was founded by human rights lawyer Nani Jansen Reventlow who is specialised in strategic litigation at the intersection of human rights, social justice, and technology. You can find an overview of our team and collaborators here.

Values

Our work is guided by three foundational values: 

  • Anti-oppression: we challenge oppression (racism, homophobia, ableism, sexism, xenophobia, transphobia) by confronting systems of domination, privilege, exclusion, and institutional violence. 
  • Intersectionality: we approach our work through an intersectional lens that centres how an individual’s social or political identity and personal characteristics can overlap and combine to create different modes of discrimination, exclusion, and oppression.   
  • Justice: we believe that justice means providing all individuals with an equal opportunity to enforce their rights, access remedies, and receive reparations for violations of their rights and to push for change before the courts.   

Non-profit status

Systemic Justice is a non-profit registered in the Netherlands with ANBI (Dutch Public Benefit Organisation) status. You can find our registration information here.
