Human Rights Connected built a collaborative platform to collect and share knowledge and resources for nonviolent movements and human rights defenders worldwide. We strive to develop an interactive community of practice around human rights activism. Contribute to this goal by adding practical content to our online library!

We have three libraries:

  • Organizations: compiles organizations, institutions, and campaigns that make up the landscape of the human rights sector. These organizations advocate, educate, connect, and provide other support to help human rights defenders promote and protect human rights.
  • Law Resources: includes practical law resources such as human rights treaties, glossaries, handbooks and other materials that provide legal support for human rights defenders. These resources explain basic legal concepts, the international framework for human rights, and how human rights defenders can access the legal framework.
  • Activist Toolkit: compiles links with practical tools, knowledge, and initiatives to help human rights defenders organize, plan, and grow their movements. These resources connect activists with a wide range of support including education, fundraising, technical support, and capacity building.


Once we receive your submission, an HRC team member will review the resource and add it to our database.
