American Bar Association Center for Human Rights

Presence in: United States
Focus: Other

The ABA Center for Human Rights defends human rights advocates from harassment all around the world. We take down legal barriers to advocacy, mobilize the global legal community, and hold governments accountable for restricting human rights activities. Our program enables advocates to work freely.

We provide a range of assistance, including litigation advice, legal research and drafting, trial observation, or advocacy campaigns. We identify experienced attorneys with relevant regional and linguistic expertise to support local counsel. We provide assistance in a range of circumstances, including helping defenders charged with crimes in retaliation for their advocacy efforts or organizations that are not allowed to register.

We have been working for nearly 23 years in providing free legal aid to marginalized and vulnerable groups and victims of torture. How are NGOs in Serbia poor, especially in the south of Serbia, we always hope that someone will have understanding and provide us with some financial help.

I am a Staff Attorney for the ABA Center for Human Rights, where I provide pro bono legal assistance to human rights activists facing harassment. My regional focus is in South Asia and Southeast Asia. I am hoping to connect with other legal practitioners to collaborate on cases and provide assistance and protection to human rights activists around the world, and in particular in Asia.
