From Empathy to Action: Philanthropy’s Role in Advancing Human Rights

"Strategies & Tools for Funding Human Rights Groups Across the world"

Moderated by: Babbie Jacobs & Otar Makharashvili

Featuring:
Lauren Embrey – Embrey Foundation
Tarah Demant – Amnesty International USA

Recent restrictions on freedom of expression, information, and association across the world have attempted to limit, and in some instances criminalize, activities by civil society. Several governments approved extreme legislation and/or engaged in other activities expressly designed to restrict the flow of foreign funding. Mounting violence in South Sudan, Mali and Syria have led to stern human rights violations and mass displacement. In Russia and parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, governmental policies have promoted anti-LGBT laws.

Women and girls around the world are refused access to education and political participation, trapped in conflicts where rape is perpetrated as a weapon of war, forced into child marriages, and/or trafficked into forced labor and sex slavery. These are just few of the examples of human rights violations around the world that merit the attention of all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status.

The call for additional funding from Human Rights advocacy groups from around the world has never been louder. And as individual philanthropists are increasingly joining the effort to prioritize human rights as a central funding area, the overwhelming nature of these complex issues tend to be a major roadblock for many donors who want their philanthropic dollars to have the maximum impact.

Join us for a bold conversation as we explore some effective tactics and strategies for funding Human Rights groups around the world. Our speakers will include Lauren Embrey, President of the Embrey Family Foundation and Board Member of Women Moving Millions, and Tarah Demant, Senior Director of the Identity and Discrimination Unit at Amnesty International USA.
