We all have a part to play in defending human rights. By engaging volunteers in hands-on human rights work, we accomplish critical research and advocacy and transform volunteers into advocates for human rights.

The Advocates grounds policy work in the lived experiences of our partners and clients. When our clients experience injustice, we help them and advocate to change the systems that perpetuate those injustices. When our partners report barriers to safety and security, we identify the gaps in legal protections and develop solutions.

Rooted in deep expertise and strong relationships, The Advocates works in our home community and in partnerships around the globe to address some of the most intractable human rights issues.
