The reports our researchers write are not just outstanding journalism – they are tools for protecting human rights.
Because of our reports on the systematic mishandling of sexual assault cases, the Washington DC Metro Police has overhauled its procedures. When we discovered how guards at Barrick Gold mines in Papua New Guinea were raping and beating workers, the corporation fired those responsible and police launched criminal investigations. When we exposed how soldiers in Yemen were occupying and storing weapons in schools full of students, they were ordered to leave.
Our methods of fighting abuses have proved effective time and again. But our work is never over – human rights are threatened daily, across the world. We need the help of supporters like you to keep our researchers on the ground. We need your help to keep fighting.
