Protecting human rights is

our collective responsibility

Synergía – Initiatives for Human Rights envisions a world in which all people enjoy their full range of human rights, free from violence and discrimination. 

To achieve this reality, our work seeks to protect and promote the human rights of all people – especially whose rights are most frequently and egregiously violated.

Our Partnerships

Synergía’s work is grounded in partnerships with local, regional, international organizations, and human rights movements.

Through these partnerships, we seek to ground our work in collaborations that acknowledge those most affected by human rights violations and abusers are those that define those needs that are most pressing and decide on hose strategies that will be most effective in addressing them.

Support Our Work

Your support will further our work by offering flexible resources that will be used to advance our provision of capacity strengthening, funding, and strategic guidance to our partners. The flexibility of this support is vital when there is an opportunity to take advantage of a quickly emerging opportunity or when responding to an emerging crisis. This ultimately creates more adaptive and resilient movements that are necessary to ensure human rights for all.
