Our central mission is to increase access to the human rights legal framework through knowledge and resource-sharing that can be leveraged by nonviolent movements and human rights defenders around the world.
We are a registered nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization based in Washington, D.C.
Our team conducts thoughtful research to build an extensive knowledge-sharing platform on human rights organizations, nonviolent action and legal resources that strengthen civil society involvement in the promotion and protection of human rights.
We promote the understanding of relevant legal frameworks and civil resistance through technical support, training, the curation of practical resources, and other creative projects.
Our emphasis on technical and strategic knowledge ensures our online library features adequate tools to connect the fields of human rights and civic driven change.
Knowledge is power: Education is the most powerful deterrent against human rights violations. Knowing how to claim and defend your rights creates opportunities and inspires people to mobilize effectively to demand change and hold human rights actors and institutions accountable. We are inspired by human rights advocates who work to provide better access to resources essential to the successful pursuit of their causes.
We are all agents of change.
