Support Civil Rights Defenders: Alex's Holiday Fundraiser

Civil Rights Defenders is a truly impressive organization that I have had the privilege to be with for the last year, working to support local human rights groups in some of the world's most repressive countries with the goal of achieving long-term, sustainable, human rights progress.

I'm especially proud to be a part of supporting groups who fight for freedom of speech, democratic change, and LGBT rights, in regions where people are marginalized, repressed, jailed, even murdered, just for standing up for basic human dignity.

Authoritarian governments prioritize suppressing groups like these, because they understand that preventing democratic change and maintaining their personal grip on power depends on silencing or controlling democratic civil society before it becomes strong enough to challenge them.

I want to ask you to join me in this fight, by pitching in. Help me smash the ambitious target of raising 10,000 SEK (about 1,000 EUR) before New Year's Day, 2018.

Funds in support of Civil Rights Defenders go to:

- Achieving better security for people at risk of being attacked because of their work to defend civil and political rights
- Innovation to address the most urgent problems human rights defenders have
- Psychosocial support for human rights defenders who face extreme marginalization through tactics designed to deconstruct their mental health and ability to continue, often also affecting their friends and family
- Long-term financial support to help sustain the survival of local groups who are important voices for change without whom sustainable progress would be impossible

NOTE: You can use this page to pitch in from anywhere in the world, but if you're in the United States, you can also choose to instead use our fund at the King Baudouin Foundation USA to make your contribution tax-deductible. Click here to go directly to our US contribution page.
