Founded in 2010, the Surabaya Legal Aid Foundation (LBH Surabaya) has two main objectives: to fight for freedom of expression and to defend the rights of journalists and media workers. LBH Surabaya works to close the gap between the legally guaranteed rights to free press and public participation and the often incomplete implementation of these rights. To achieve these goals, LBH Surabaya provides free legal aid, conducts training sessions, and carries out research and advocacy. LBH Surabaya is also active in many national, regional, and international networks.
