Supporter Survey Winner Announced!

Congratulations to the winner of our 2013 Supporter Survey, Alice Blanc, who was delighted to receive the prize of a meal for two at the highly acclaimed Restaurant 1701!

Alice said:  "René Cassin stands out as a unique organisation since its roots in Judaism offers a new perspective on issues that the Jewish people know too well, and uses the wisdom of our ancient texts with Human Rights law to fight any form of discrimination."  

We would like to thank our supporters who took time to participate in the survey; the results are being analysed and will be crucial in planning our work going forward. We would also like to thank Restaurant 1701 for their generous donation of this prize.

Jewish "Postcards for Justice" sent to Nick Clegg

René Cassin, as a member of the Justice Alliance, mobilised the Jewish community to participate in mass lobbying efforts against legal aid cuts. 

Campaign efforts included the Postcards for Justice Campaign, a protest in front of Lib Dem headquarters, and petitioning of Lib Dem members Simon Hughes and Nick Clegg to oppose the cuts.  René Cassin is deeply concerned about the impact of recent and proposed legal aid cuts on access to justice in the UK.  We continue to be involved in this issue and firmly believe that equal access to justice remains a pivotal human right.
