Human Rights Defenders Initiative

Human rights activists gather annually at the Carter Center's Human Rights Defenders Policy Forum to discuss national and global issues affecting the enjoyment of human rights, such as the state of U.S. commitments to human rights and the impact of the war on terror. Discussions are led by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights.

For more than 20 years, President and Mrs. Carter have personally supported thousands of human rights defenders by appealing through letters or in private meetings to heads of state on behalf of those who are persecuted for their courageous work.

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
