Our Mission

The mission of The Advocates for Human Rights is to implement international human rights standards to promote civil society and reinforce the rule of law. By involving volunteers in research, education, and advocacy, we build broad constituencies in the United States and select global communities.

We are a volunteer-driven 501(c)(3) organization.

We are proud to be recognized by Charity Navigator and by GuideStar with its Nonprofit Profile's Gold Participation Level for our commitment to nonprofit transparency.
