About Us

Speak Truth to Power is dedicated to the promotion of human rights awareness. We are a not-for-profit organization that seeks to proactively engage the general public in an ongoing series of issue-related programs and events. We believe that we can leverage the capacity of the internet in coordination with a traveling exhibition, play, and book to provide a forum for individual action and to foster communication between human rights-interested individuals and organizations. In short, we hope to encourage each member of our community to take up the defense of human rights. We hope that you will participate.

Over the past three years, Speak Truth has grown from a book exploring the quality of courage through the words of leading human rights defenders around the world to the moving and inspiring play by esteemed Chilean writer Ariel Dorfman, the stirring photographic exhibition by the late Pulitzer Prize-winner Eddie Adams, a PBS documentary film, an education packet, and five public service announcements on COURT TV. In addition, the play has been produced to acclaim in many places, including Geneva, London, Helsinki, Athens, Madrid and Sydney. The exhibition has toured four countries and twenty cities across America, including Boston, San Francisco, Washington, Chicago, San Diego, Detroit, Houston, Atlanta, to name just a few.
