Human rights defenders are at the forefront of the ongoing struggle for freedom, human rights and the rule of law. They fight tirelessly, and non-violently, to build peaceful societies in some of the world's most dangerous countries. In countries where communities are subject to violent conflict, intimidation or repression, human rights defenders can be key agents for resistance and change, whose work has the potential to bring about the long-term development of democratic civil society
PBI defends the defenders. On the ground we provide direct protection and support, to keep defenders alive and help their activism thrive. Our international volunteers accompany at-risk activists and communities, standing shoulder to shoulder with them in a display of solidarity that deters violent attacks.
