Human Rights Project | Los Angeles, CAHuman Rights Project | Los Angeles, CA
The Human Rights Project was founded in 1993 in order to protect the rights of immigrants and refugees who have been victims of torture. It has since expanded its role to encompass women’s rights and the rights of children.
The organization’s principles are taken from the constitution that all people are born equal and inalienable rights. “With Liberty and Justice for All” It is evident that many men, women, and children suffer from extreme injustices at the hands of their own native governments,
Our vision at the Human Rights Project is to continue to bring these types of global injustices to the forefront of our country’s national awareness by using our legal knowledge and expertise to seek justice for victims of social inequities.
The Human Rights Project attorneys refer to international treaties, domestic asylum law and human rights country reports to secure relief for those victims We currently have a small staff of 4 immigration attorneys who practice asylum law as well as law school interns who devote over 1500 laborious hour per year to our cause. Last year (2009), the Human Rights Project successfully secured
asylum for 18 compelling cases for undocumented immigrant women.
