Donate Now to the ABA Center for Human Rights
The ABA Center for Human Rights is the Association’s focal point entity on critical human rights concerns in the United States and around the world. Your support of the Center’s work is important and appreciated. That work includes, among other activities:
Supporting Human Rights Defenders
The Justice Defenders Program supports embattled local human rights lawyers and advocates working in difficult environments and vulnerable circumstances by advising on sensitive trials and cases; providing local lawyers with experts on international law standards, best practices, and effective advocacy and litigation strategies; and observing and providing analysis of trials of human rights advocates.
Anti-trafficking and Atrocity Prevention
The Center maintains educational resources for use by lawyers and other advocates representing trafficking victims and is working with the Uniform Law Commission to develop a model uniform state anti-trafficking law. It also is implementing ABA atrocity prevention policy, working with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to develop atrocities prevention efforts and mobilize effective responses where atrocities erupt.
Increasing U.S. Engagement with the ICC
The ICC Project fosters U.S. engagement and cooperation with the International Criminal Court by facilitating trainings, public and private meetings among policymakers and ICC officials, and legislative advocacy.
The ABA Center for Human Rights, a public service program of the American Bar Association, receives funding through the ABA Fund for Justice and Education (FJE). The FJE was created to accept gifts and grants to support the ABA’s public service work. The FJE qualifies as an exempt fund under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and all contributions to the FJE are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
