Giving a Voice to African Thought in Medical Research Ethics
Date: December 3-5, 2015
Location: Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
The focus of the Conference will be on reflecting on ethical issues in medical research through the lens of African ethical thought or philosophy, rather than merely on ethical issues affecting Africa. The intention is to encourage new work that will apply salient sub-Saharan moral values or norms to pertinent questions in medical research ethics, thereby giving a voice to indigenous African moral perspectives.
Discrimination Free Zone Campaign
“We aim to end discrimination against any individuals or groups of people based on race, color, gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, age, or disability through the creation of Discrimination Free Zones throughout the world. These Discrimination Free Zones are always peaceful, and they inform others that discrimination will be offensive to us and that we will not participate in any actions in which such sentiments are included.”
Justice For Families – Family Bill of Rights
The groundbreaking J4F report, Families Unlocking Futures, uncovers crucial flaws in the system that burden, alienate, and exclude families from the treatment of system-involved youth. The Family Bill of Rights aims to correct these flaws and includes five principal rights. J4F is working to move the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention to issue guidelines that reflect the Family Bill of Rights.
