The Civil Association for Equality and Justice (ACIJ) "is a non-profit and non-partisan organization, founded as a place where citizens can participate, generate proposals, and channel their enthusiasm to build a more fair and equitable society.

"At the beginning of 2002, a group of young people deeply committed to the development of Argentina, founded ACIJ in order to reinforce wholesome and representative institutions, ensure a greater compliance with the law, and prevent institutional deficiencies which generate social inequity, unjust privileges, corruption and lack of transparency."
