Lembaga Bantuan Hukum Bandung
Bandung Legal Aid, commonly known as LBH Bandung, was founded in February 1981 by members of the Indonesian Advocate Association (PERADIN). Following the ITB White Book Incident, the members who were also a part of the Red and White Defender team, responsible for the defense of the ITB college students, became critical in accelerating the establishment of LBH Bandung. In 1981, LBH Peradin was integrated into the Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation based in Jakarta (YLBHI). The name LBH Bandung formed, recognising them as part of YLBHI.
As a civil society organization in West Java, LBH Bandung has a view that State enforcement must protect and provide sufficient economic, social, and cultural rights and basic human freedoms. Other than honouring those aforementioned rights and freedoms, the protection of civil and political rights is an important and inseparable aspect in maintaining the State.
Today, LBH Bandung decided to become a voluntary organization and focuses on legal and human rights advocacy in the West Java region.
