About The Blue Letters
We are a digital knowledge platform. Throughout human history, one of the primary reasons for socio-economic disparity has been lack of accessibility, especially to knowledge. The law, complex social structures, and the intricate concepts of various social sciences often create confusion due to their complex terminology and the sheer volume of data.
This confusion, this gap between people and information is the place where most of society’s issues take root – be it corruption, class disparity, or other forms of discrimination.
This initiative is a small attempt from our side to bridge that gap. Our hope and objective is for a more inclusive and accessible future.
Who Can Apply
The Blue Letters is accepting the second batch of candidates from all educational backgrounds, provided that they are interested in, and capable of, writing socio-legal articles.
