Derechos Humanos has several projects that work to build solidarity and facilitate the empowerment of community. Beyond educational work around abuse documentation and “Know Your Rights” trainings, we work to build coalitions with other social justice organizations and community groups.
We work to raise awareness about the human rights crisis we are facing on the U.S.- México border through the documentation of migrant deaths, a testimony to the estimated 4,000 men, women and children who have died on the border.
We work to raise awareness about the environmental degradation and violations of Indigenous sovereignty and rights of mobility and passage that are being witnessed every day in border communities. The sanctity of life must be valued above all else, and policies should be implemented that reflect this reverence for all life.
Our projects are a reflection of this broad work, and a testimony to our commitment to participate in the creation of sustainable change. We welcome all friends and allies who wish to join us in these efforts, and offer our solidarity to all people in struggle.
