The creation of OJALA
On February 17, 2018, the meeting participants listed below decided to transform what had been until then the “International Working Group-Comparative Assessment of the Utility (or Lack Thereof) of ‘Multicultural Legal Instruments’ for Afrodescendants in Latin America” into a formally constituted group called: In Spanish: Observatorio de Justicia para Afrodescendientes en Latinoamérica (OJALA); In English: Institute of Justice for Afrodescendants in Latin America; In Portuguese: Observatório
The participants in the February 17, 2018 meeting are the founding members of OJALA. On March 20, 2018, the founding members adopted OJALA's constitution.
