The Advocates for Human Rights believes everyone has the power to advance human rights. By engaging volunteers in hands-on human rights work, The Advocates not only accomplishes critical research and advocacy, we transform volunteers into advocates for human rights.
With a dual focus on systemic change and direct services, we ground policy work in real-life experiences, bridging the gap between advocacy and action.?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 partnerships in our home community and around the globe to address some of the world's most intractable human rights issues.
