A Human Rights Defender (HRD) is a person or group that works on the front lines to promote and protect human rights.
Because Human Rights Defenders are directly challenging human rights abuses by governments and private parties, their
own rights can be endangered. This resource sheet is designed specifically for Human Rights Defenders, providing
information about safety and security, emergency assistance for at-risk HRDs, and advocacy tools.
