The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization devoted to defending human rights globally, with a special focus in the Americas. We recognize the inalienable rights that protect the individual from arbitrary state and legal actions. We believe that all nations must acknowledge and protect the freedom of their citizens; we stand for the possibility of fully democratic states, limited by the rule of law, that honor and uphold the principles of liberty.
HRF's programs are designed to further global understanding of the recurring threats to freedom.. HRF's programs seek to provide education about what constitutes a free society, why freedom matters, and how freedom might best be nurtured, developed, and sustained. More specifically, our programs aim to inform leaders, experts, intellectuals, and concerned private citizens about how best to promote democracy and tolerance in troubled regions.
HRF produces the Oslo Freedom Forum, an annual human rights conference in Norway.
