Join IJRC in Standing for All Humans with Rights

IJRC’s work is made possible by the generous support of individuals like YOU!

Through the I Am a Human with Rights! campaign, we are spreading the message that our fundamental rights are protected by international law. Our goal is to raise $30,000 by December 31, to continue empowering advocates to achieve justice for human rights violations in 2013.

Your donation will be doubled dollar-for-dollar by an IJRC supporter’s matching grant.  Don’t miss this chance to make twice the impact!

To understand how IJRC uses your contribution to inform, guide and support human rights defenders, take a look at some of our highlights from the past six months:

May – Created an advocacy handbook and all-day training seminar on the international human rights framework for U.S.-based advocates and attorneys.

June – Produced an animated, first-of-a-kind video and accompanying 222-page manual explaining the Inter-American system for the protection of human rights; and, published a primer on international humanitarian law.

July Moved our headquarters to San Francisco, where IJRC was accepted into a non-profit incubator, helping to keep overhead costs very low.

August – Prepared a twopart primer on advocacy before the United Nations Human Rights Council, and published thematic guides on torture and children’s rights.

September – IJRC welcomed several volunteer law fellows, and published a set of guides on the courts and tribunals of regional economic communities like the European Union.

October – Developed digital guides on refugee law and the human rights of LGBTI persons, and posted more human rights defenders’ stories in our Interview Series.

November – Created a series of guides on National Human Rights Institutions, published a thematic research guide on the right to a nationality, and continued drafting an amicus curiae brief in a case involving the extrajudicial execution of a social justice advocate.

Your support ensures we are able to continue providing information and tailored advocacy support to grassroots defenders of human rights.  Please join us in saying:
