The Advocates for Human Rights

The Advocates for Human Rights is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-governmental organization whose mission is to implement international human rights standards to promote civil society and reinforce the rule of law. We believe that every person has a part to play in building the human rights movement and we engage hundreds of volunteers every year in hands-on human rights work, leveraging every dollar spent three to five times.

The Advocates:

  • Works with partner groups in Minnesota and worldwide on law reform to ensure that the law protects women and girls from violence.
  • Offers free legal services to immigrants and asylum seekers in search of protection.
  • Educates children, parents, teachers and communities about human rights.
  • Provides a free education to hundreds of children in Nepal through the Sankhu-Palubari Community School—giving needy children an alternative to child labor.
  • Promotes human rights through international justice mechanisms and develops practical strategies to assist post-conflict countries and their diaspora communities in moving toward peace and accountability.
  • Opposes the death penalty through advocacy and education.
  • Helps communities become more welcoming to all people, including refugees and immigrants.

Every gift counts!
