The Alternative Law Groups convened in a general assembly at the WB The Ivywall Resort-Panglao, Bohol on August 22-24, 2022.
Representatives and communication officers from ALG member organizations have discussed project updates, new and potential coalition projects, and the national human rights situation in the communities we’re working with.
During the human rights discussion, the coalition conducted breakout sessions where delegates from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao shared insights on the human rights situation in their respective regions. They were also able to pinpoint pressing issues that our community partners face ranging from environmental, gender, to political concerns, where mining, disinformation, red-tagging, and punitive policies were determined to be the major cross-cutting concerns.
In the two-day general assembly, the network was also able to look back at its strategic goals and plans and assess if they remain true to the mission and vision of the Alternative Law Groups. Through thorough discussion, ALG was able to realign as a network, reaffirm their impact statement, and refine external and internal goals.
