The Annual Human Rights Institute

Our annual Human Rights Institute promotes good governance and social change by training a select group of participants from around the country to strengthen their local advocacy efforts by using a human rights frame.

“I have learned so much through the Institute. It has absolutely deepened my commitment to utilizing a human rights framework in my work.”
— Former HRI participant


Alumni become part of a nationwide community of advocates and have access to ongoing education, technical support, and dialogue. Our tenth annual Human Rights Institute was held in spring of 2015 in New York City.
