Who We Serve

We work with human rights defenders who face ongoing harassment, threats, and criminal charges in retaliation for their legitimate rights work. We coordinate legal assistance, observe trials, petition U.N. and regional treaty-bodies, and conduct international advocacy on behalf of human rights defenders at risk.
