PAP now RAL was established in response to the dire needs of inmates and to bring to national and international attention the appalling conditions of prison inmates.

 

Over the years RAL then PAP has been conducting a constituency outreach/legislative-constituents interactive fora in Montserrado, Margibi and Bong Counties and the overreaching indicators speak of overwhelming passion amongst local communities to demand greater participation, accountability and transparency from their leaders. Though there exists tremendous enthusiasm to participate in policy debates and dialogue, that they become knowledgeable of effective and constructive engagement in governance cannot be understated. Given this revealed needs for civil intervention, PAP metamorphosed as the Rescue Alternatives Liberia (RAL) in 2008 to engender this needed broader focus and in other thematic areas such as governance and political reforms initiatives in order to inform a paradigm shift in the political landscape in contemporary Liberia.
