Last month, the Human Rights Foundation welcomed over 1,300 human rights advocates from around the world to Oslo, Norway, for the 15th annual Oslo Freedom Forum (OFF).
Activists, innovators, and creatives took the OFF stage to share their stories and raise the profile of their causes. Attendees witnessed how seemingly ordinary citizens can challenge the world’s deadliest tyrants, willing to speak out against them and even risk arrest, torture, or death.
Panel discussions, fireside chats, and workshops challenged participants to think more critically about the issues presented during theater talks and create practical, innovative solutions to advance freedom worldwide. In turn, OFF has given life to unique partnerships, collaborations, impact, and support for at-risk advocates.
