You can help make the world more fair, equal and sustainable by supporting a human rights defender.


From promoting equality and dignity for all, preventing and exposing violations, and obtaining justice for victims, to ensuring that our freedoms and rights are reflected in our laws, policies and practices, human rights defenders are making the world a fairer place for all of us.
