Fair Freedom Rights is a movement of millions fighting for human rights. Fair Freedom Rights is a global organization’s presence in the United States and Subsaharan countries. We engage people in the U.S. to fight injustice all around the world, while we also work to protect people’s human rights here in the U.S.
F.F.R has more than a thousand members and activists in all 50 states. We are a democratically governed, grassroots membership organization, which means that our members vote on key policy issues and elect our Board of Directors.
Some of our members are experts on specific human rights issues, parts of the world, or advocacy areas, and they serve as volunteer leaders. Others are volunteer leaders of local F.F.R groups in towns, universities, states, or regions of countries.
Why the Work We Do is Important to our Team
Starting with the basic idea that everyone merit to be valued equally, Fair Freedom Rights works for a peaceful and safe world, with freedom and justice for all.
Conflicts and violations of people’s basic human rights are increasingly defining features of the world we live in. We believe that a strong and well-functioning civil society is more important than ever, especially at the local level. We challenge politicians, the private sector, and civil society to push harder for progress and to work together towards a world in which people’s civil and political rights are fully respected.
By taking a stand for our values and dedicating to providing the right expertise where needed, we seek to contribute to progress towards a better world for all.
Leading the Organization and the movement
Leading the organization – and the movement F.F.R develops a clear vision for the organization through policies that set goals and priorities. The Board provides stewardship for the organization; establishes appropriate and constructive working relationships with staff; and ensures the financial health of the organization through fiscal oversight and fundraising.

Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death. They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe, or how you choose to live your life.
They can never be taken away, although they can sometimes be restricted – for example, if a person breaks the law, or in the interests of national security.
These basic rights are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect, and independence.
These values are defined and protected by law.
Around the world, our human rights are protected by the Human Rights Act 1998.
