Microjusticia Argentina (MJA) was founded in 2010. It is composed of a team of young lawyers and students committed to helping those that live in situation of vulnerability due to lack of access to their basic legal rights. MJA knows that the obtention of full legal rights takes time, but it is the only way to overcome structural poverty and achieve autonomy.
MJA works with volunteers in the city and Province of Buenos Aires to provide basic legal support to legally marginalized communities. The main strength of MJA is its capacity to mobilize young enthusiastic people and law students to participate in the institution as volunteers.
MJA focuses on several areas of action including:
- IDs (registration of birth, obtaining ID, rectification of personal data and other processes that serve the formal integration of people in society);
- children´s rights (helping children access rights to adequate food, education and identity;
- health and rights (disability certificates, pensions, decent work and health benefits for persons with health problems or disabilities);
- immigration (regularization of the living situation of immigrants, through a formal collaboration agreement with National Immigration Authority); and
- labor and taxes (regularizing their tax status and labor situation of people).
