Each day human rights defenders speak out for the rights of others. Each day they risk their livelihoods, their liberty and, in many cases, their lives. Attacks, abductions, and assassinations are on the increase; more than 300 defenders were murdered for their peaceful human rights work in 2020.
We believe everyone has the right to defend, and we know that the more people involved in upholding human rights, the less risky the work becomes, and the greater the achievements of the global social justice movements will be.
Whether fighting for social equality, access to justice and a fair trial, or environmental and indigenous rights, we are stronger together.
PBI is a leading NGO working to protect human rights defenders at risk. We provide life-saving support to community leaders and other human rights defenders in some of the most dangerous countries in the world, with current field presence in Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Nepal, Indonesia, Costa Rica and Honduras.
This year, PBI will be by the side of over 1,000 human rights defenders who risk everything for their communities. Join our movement today and together we will provide life-saving security monitoring and protection strategies that help them carry on with their work without fear; provide the training, knowledge and tools they need to enhance their capacity and capabilities; and mobilise the international community to keep activists alive so their activism can thrive
By donating today you'll help us build on the achievements of 2020, to partner with even more defenders and organisations on the very frontline of the global struggle for human rights. You'll provide the skills, tools and protection they need to keep working; and the global platform they need to be heard.
Together, we will:
- Protect defenders keeping them safe by implementing tailored security and protection strategies so they can work without fear
- Train human rights defenders providing the tools they'll need to increase their capacity and capabilities so they can be there for their communities
- Advocate for stronger protections - ensuring businesses and governments fulfil their obligations
- Draw international attention and support to grassroots causes and defenders
If you share our vision of a world where individuals and communities can defend their fundamental rights without fear of reprisals and violence, then please consider donating to PBI UK today.
