Human Rights Watch

Human Rights Watch is a New York-based, international non-governmental organization that advocates for human rights around the world.

Human Rights Watch was founded in 1978 to monitor the Soviet Union’s compliance with the Helsinki Accords which sought to improve relations between the Communist bloc and the West.

Their model is “naming and shaming” which works even better in today’s social media environment. In fact, we encourage all families at risk of government violence to prepare to document interactions with cell phone video and publish them in social media. We cannot be violent, but we can shame those who are violent and their families.

Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2018

The Festival is screening 15 movies about what ails us. Twelve of the films are directed or co-directed by women.
