Membership and Development

Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights relies on the support and activism of our members to promote and protect human rights worldwide. We invite you to become a Human Rights Advocate.

Ensuring judicial fairness through trial observations in Romania and South Africa; exposing human rights violations in Albania and North Korea; bringing the regional conflict in Chiapas, Mexico to the international forum; and supporting the effort to hold Chiles Augusto Pinochet accountable for human rights atrocities -- these are just a few of the accomplishments that punctuate the past 15 years of service provided by Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights.

Minnesota Advocates is recognized as a leading international human rights organization. The work and strength of Minnesota Advocates has been the activism and volunteerism of community members. By becoming a Human Rights Advocate, Minnesotans can be national and international leaders in the human rights movement.

Whether through educating Minnesota students about human rights and responsibilities; providing advocacy, education and legal services to immigrants and refugees in our community; promoting the rights of women locally, nationally and internationally; or protecting child survival in countries such as the U.S., Uganda and Mexico -- Minnesota Advocates is dedicated to partnering with our community members and communities abroad to ensure respect for human rights.
