Pack your bags. Grab your passport. There's no better way to ignite your passion for global justice than by traveling with AJWS to Africa, Asia, Latin America or the Caribbean.

Meet with extraordinary activists, journalists, academics and elected officials to understand the impact of AJWS’s international work.

We were transported to these activists’ world of extraordinary bravery and complexity, and we walked away feeling that we had born witness to real change.

AJWS Study Tour to Burma
I cannot yet tell people about my trips in a way that fully captures the emotional impact they have had on me, and perhaps I never will. But I will continue to find ways to articulate these journeys. Traveling to meet grantees is how I derive inspiration for my leadership at AJWS. Their work inspired me before, but once I saw it with my own eyes, it changed me forever.
