Human rights are good for your health: run the Brussels 20 km with ASF

On 27 May 2018, ASF will be on the starting line of the Brussels 20 km. Want to combine sporting achievement and solidarity with people seeking justice in Indonesia? Join our team! The idea: We will spoil you before, during, and after the race with:
  • A weekly training session and individual guidance for fourteen weeks leading up to the race, to be held at lunchtime in the Parc du Cinquantenaire by our colleague Pascal, an exercise enthusiast (as well as weekend training for walkers, led by Karin).
  • A bib with your running time on it, an ASF T-shirt, a drink, and a snack during the race.
  • Advice on getting people you know to sponsor you.
  • A place to change and shower, very near to the starting line.
  • barbecue in our garden after the race, which your friends and family are welcome to attend.

ASF opens new headquarters in Brussels

Brussels, 23 February 2017 – The start of 2017 has been marked by a sense of renewal for Avocats Sans Frontières. For the past eight years, our premises on the rue de Namur have served as the base for the work of our dedicated team, but this Monday our Brussels headquarters relocated to a different quarter of the city: avenue de la Chasse 140, in Etterbeek. Our new base is more central than ever, allowing us to remain at the heart of the capital and its affairs, with the Belgian and European institutions just a stone’s throw away. When choosing a location for our new premises, ease of access for our Belgian and international visitors – particularly those using public transport – was one of the key criteria. A new map is available on our site. Although our address has changed, our values and mission remain the same. They will always be a fundamental part of who we are, not only in Brussels but in Kinshasa, Tunis, Bangui and N’Djamena – because that is where the work of Avocats Sans Frontières and its partners in support of access to justice for the most vulnerable really takes place – in the field. Your support is more vital than ever if we are to ensure that every person seeking justice is able to assert their rights. Thank you in advance Continue reading “ASF opens new headquarters in Brussels”
