Get Involved with the Center for Human Rights


There are numerous ways to get involved with CHR.  We encourage all interested people to explore how they can best participate in supporting our programs and projects.


Though the Center for Human Rights is housed at the University of Washington, the majority of our programs and projects are funded by individual and foundation donors like you.  Your tax-deductible gift to the Center will make a tremendous impact in our ability to continue to carry out our work.  To give online visit or contact to speak to someone about other ways to donate.

Attend a Human Rights Event

The Center holds a variety of events throughout the year.  Our events feature human rights work in our local communities as well as human rights work abroad and range from panels and workshops to large lectures.  Every year we feature a winter event near Human Rights Day that celebrates UW students's human rights-related work.  In the spring of each year, UW CHR holds a symposium and reception celebrating human rights work in our local community.  To see UW CHR's events calendar, click here.
