Act Now! The Campaign for Human Rights

"The Advocates can stretch a dollar so far in defending human rights throughout the world - locally, nationally, and internationally." - Kathy Lenzmeier, Campaign Chair

Act Now! The Campaign for Human Rights is a special initiative that will allow The Advocates to continue and expand our vital work. Recent events show that we cannot take any of our fundamental human rights for granted, not here in the United States nor anywhere in the world.

We can all be part of the solution. Your gift of any size can and will make a difference in the lives of immigrants, human rights defenders, and survivors of domestic violence.

Give today and your gift will go twice as far. A fund from our committed board members will match all donations received by August 31, 2022.


If you would like to make a multi-year pledge to the Act Now! Campaign, please contact Thekla Rura-Polley.
