Human Rights Defenders Policy Forum

The Human Rights Defenders Policy Forum began in November 2003 with our first Defenders Conference hosted at The Carter Center in Atlanta. Entitled "Human Rights Defenders on the Frontlines of Freedom: Protecting Human Rights in the Context of the War on Terror," it brought together human rights activists from 41 countries to discuss their work and how US and other foreign policies were affecting their efforts.

The human rights defenders featured on this website represent history in the making: they are courageously leading the way to a more just and equitable global society. What better role models for our students?
