AEquitas' (|'ekwitäs|; EH-qui-tahs) mission is to improve access to and the quality of justice in gender-based violence and human trafficking cases through an informed, practical, and innovative approach.

Named after the Roman goddess of equity and fairness, AEquitas was established to support prosecutors in their individual and collective efforts to achieve justice in gender-based violence and human trafficking cases. 

Since 2009, AEquitas and its staff, comprised primarily of former prosecutors, have worked closely with governmental and nongovernmental agencies to promote a contextual, rather than uniform, approach to the pursuit of justice for victims around the world. By promoting a deeper and more meaningful understanding of these cases, AEquitas and its network are dedicated to increasing successful prosecutions and ultimately preventing future acts of violence.
