International Rights Advocates
The Washington, DC based International Rights Advocates (IRAdvocates) was formed, in part, as an antidote to the "values" that put power and profit over our planet's most precious asset: its people. Our work is designed to contribute to a more just world. We leverage human rights law via the courts in the US and other countries to empower victims of the full spectrum of human rights violations - from summary executions and forced labor to the denial of the rights to health and livelihood - to hold powerful entities, like multinational corporations, accountable. Holding these powerful entities accountable and liable will contribute to changing their decision-making calculus, and thereby motivate them to act in a more just and sustainable fashion.
