General Information

  • Volunteer Opportunities / Responsibilities: Our primary need for volunteer assistance is pro bono legal support. Our legal work involves filing legal petitions with various international bodies, such as the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, the European Court of Human Rights, and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. We reply primarily on pro bono law firm partners to help us with this work and in 2016 received the equivalent of over $1.1 million in pro bono assistance.

    As a small non-profit we also can use help in any number of areas in which we do not have capacity, especially marketing and communications.
  • Types of Volunteers Needed: individual/adult; adult groups of less than 5
  • Hours Needed: business hours during the week
