Front Line Defenders

Front Line Defenders provides rapid and practical support to human rights defenders at risk through: international advocacy, including emergency support for those in immediate danger; grants to pay for the practical security needs; trainings and resource materials on security and protection; rest, respite and other opportunities for human rights defenders dealing with extreme stress; opportunities for networking and exchange between human rights defenders; the annual Front Line Defenders Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk; and an emergency 24-hour phone line for human rights defenders operating in Arabic, English, French, Russian and Spanish.

Sadly anti-slavery activists are increasingly targeted. We are grateful to be able to call on Frontline's expertise.
