About Global Rights:

 

Founded in 1978, Global Rights is an international human rights capacity-building non-governmental organization (NGO) that works side by side with local activists in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to promote and protect the rights of marginalized populations. Through broad-based technical assistance and training, they strengthen partners to document and expose human rights abuses, conduct community outreach and mobilization, advocate for legal and policy reform, and provide legal and paralegal services. Over their 34-year history, Global Rights has worked in scores of countries to help local leaders and organizations to address human rights abuses and to lift their struggles out of isolation and onto regional and international stages, where institutions such as the United Nations and Organization of American States develop and enforce human rights standards. At the core of their programming is a deep commitment to increase access to justice for poor and marginalized groups, promote womens rights and gender equality, and advance ethnic and racial equality. In addition to this, they have two special initiativeslesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex rights and natural resources and human rightsthat allow them to explore new program areas while targeting populations that fit within their core programming. Global Rights is governed by a seventeen-member board of directors comprising senior lawyers, journalists, and academics and operated by a 70-member staff, two-thirds of whom work outside the United States.
