Human Rights Funders Network works to counter the global trend of closing civic space and promote an enabling environment for human rights philanthropy. In collaboration with our members and peer networks, we educate, connect, and amplify the voices of funders across fields to identify forces behind this trend and develop shared strategies in response.
