2020 Human Rights First Virtual Celebration

CLICK HERE TO DONATE  

 

OUT FRONT. IN ACTION.

Human Rights First is an independent advocacy and action organization that challenges America to live up to its ideals. This has been an unprecedented year of challenges and attacks on human rights around the world. From authoritarian leaders using the pandemic as a cover for consolidating power to crack down on the rights of citizens, to our own government preventing refugees and asylum seekers from entering the U.S., our work is needed more than ever. Human Rights First uses our expertise and that of our networks to help victims of human rights abuse, hold abusers and corrupt actors accountable, and find systemic solutions to the most pressing human rights problems.

Please join Human Rights First and special guests on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 for our virtual celebration as we honor the work of human rights defenders and champions and recommit ourselves to protecting human rights for all.
