Global Rights


Global Rights is a human rights advocacy group that partners with local activists to challenge injustice and amplify new voices within the global discourse. Global Rights has nearly 100 employees, approximately 25 of whom are located in the United States; the remaining employees are located in field offices throughout the world. Global Rights works directly with local activists and organizations to create more just societies that respect human rights. To do this, the organization has developed an unparalleled understanding of and responsiveness to the day-to-day realities facing civil society in post-conflict situations, during prolonged transitions to democratic rule, and in cultural environments that resist the promotion and protection of the human rights of women, ethnic or racial groups, and other marginalized groups. In all of their programs, Global Rights emphasizes promoting women’s human rights and combating discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
