The first University-based organization of its kind on the West Coast, the Human Rights Center conducts research on war crimes and other serious violations of international humanitarian law and human rights. We use evidence-based methods and innovative technologies to hold perpetrators accountable and support vulnerable populations. We also train students and advocates to document human rights violations and turn this information into effective action.

The Envisioning Human Rights photographs will be shown and auctioned to benefit the work of the Human Rights Center.
