We defend, equip, and give a platform to human rights activists who are boldly changing their communities and countries.
We connect activists to industry leaders and develop modern solutions to combat the worst human rights violations.
We amplify the impact of our activists by inspiring people around the world to participate in our initiatives.
We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that promotes and protects human rights globally, with a focus on closed societies. HRF unites people in the common cause of defending human rights and promoting liberal democracy. Our mission is to ensure that freedom is both preserved and promoted around the world.
We focus our work on the founding ideals of the human rights movement, those most purely represented in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and the 1976 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
