The International Institute on Race, Equality and Human Rights (Race and Equality) is a human rights organization created in 2014 working in partnership with local activists in Latin America to build grassroots movements that promote and protect the rights of populations marginalized because of gender, ethnicity, race, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.

Race and Equality has a dynamic capacity-building approach to promote human rights and combat discrimination based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Our work largely focuses on the rights of Afro-Latinos, LGBTI people, indigenous peoples, women and other marginalized communities. Using a combination of litigation, community mobilization, human rights reporting, research and advocacy methodology at the domestic and international level, we join our partners in developing and implementing strategies for change.

Our focus will be on the Organization of American States (OAS) and litigation within the Inter-American Human Rights System, in coordination with domestic litigation, policy advocacy and community mobilization, and the Universal System in particular the Treaty Bodies, Special Procedures Mandates, and the Universal Periodic Review.
