Welcome to Movements! Movements began in 2016 as a concept driven by Advancing Human Rights. The relaunch of Movements is more important than ever. The new Movements is nongovernmental, nonpartisan, and singularly focused on promoting the human rights of all people. As such, Movements has no association with previous versions of the platform or its leadership or staff. Movements is now owned and operated by Crowdsourcing Human Rights, a U.S.-based 501(c)(3).
Large-scale movements are made possible by many small-scale actions. Movements connects on-the-ground civil society activists and human rights defenders with reliable, qualified, and trusted Resource Providers from across the world who are eager to lend their skills and expertise to support human rights. By capitalizing on a global network of professional expertise, Movements.org provides activists inside repressive countries access to the knowledge and resources they would otherwise be isolated from. This creates a secure environment where human rights defenders can receive professional rights-based support and resources at no cost to them.

Activists in need post requests by providing a description of the challenge they face and the help they need. Individuals and professional organizations can browse activists requests and choose which campaigns they want to be involved in based on their interest and abilities. Movements matches activists' requests and providers' offer. Once a connection is made, the two sides will work together to achieve their goal.
