Your gift will bring greater justice and security to LGBT people everywhere.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people continue to face violence, discrimination, torture, and even execution simply because of who they love, how they look, or who they are. For over a decade Human Rights Watch’s LGBT Rights Program has been leading efforts to expose and challenge human rights abuses based on sexual orientation and gender identity around the world. Our in-depth research and targeted advocacy at the highest levels are making a real difference in the lives of others. 

A monthly gift helps us respond to urgent human rights abuses and plan ahead.

Our Mission

Human Rights Watch investigates and reports on abuses happening in all corners of the world. We are roughly 450 people of 70-plus nationalities who are country experts, lawyers, journalists, and others who work to protect the most at risk, from vulnerable minorities and civilians in wartime, to refugees and children in need. In order to maintain our independence, we accept no money from any government.

We rely solely on the generosity of people like you to defend human rights.
