Human Rights First: Challenging America to Live up to Its Ideals

Human Rights First builds respect for human rights and the rule of law to help ensure the dignity to which everyone is entitled and to stem intolerance, tyranny, and violence. Human Rights First is a non-profit, nonpartisan international human rights organization based in New York and Washington D.C. To maintain our independence, we accept no government funding. We utilize creative coalition-building, insider advocacy, litigation, research and reporting, and public advocacy. We approach tough challenges in pragmatic, focused, and integrated ways. We draw on a range of powerful communications tools to expand our reach and increase our impact. These core methods are the signature of our success and the basis of our credibility.
