About the blog

Reading Time: 1 minute

Welcome! The #HRCblog highlights and contextualizes inspiring human rights and strategic nonviolent activism. Along with our curated library of tools and resources you can find on our website, we work to foster a community of practice and engagement within the field of human rights struggles by:

  • highlighting best practices often absent in mainstream outlets
  • amplifying the voices of smaller, underexposed grassroots organizations and nonviolent movements, and
  • creating a space for dialogue and exchange about civic engagement and activism
