Human Rights

The Foundation’s Human Rights program is rooted in our belief in the inherent dignity of all people. In the United States and around the world, too many people are denied full and equal rights and participation in the political, social, and economic institutions that shape their lives. In our grantmaking, we work toward achieving a more just world where people are equally valued regardless of gender, race, class, or citizenship.

We have an intersectional approach to this work, with attention to undocumented communities, people impacted by the justice system, and women and girls. Our grantees serve communities directly and build power to improve lives. We currently fund a mix of established and emerging organizations.

We feel a sense of urgency to be responsive to human rights abuse and inequity. And we believe that long-term change requires sustained commitment, investment in those closest to the problems, and working together toward solutions.
