Make a Gift of Peace and Solidarity

Peace Brigades International-USA is able to provide support to threatened human rights defenders thanks in large part to the generous support of individuals across the U.S. Each dollar that you contribute helps us recruit more volunteers, send money to our projects so that they can do that extra trip to accompany a defender, increase our outreach during a speaking tour and have another chance to advocate for the brave individuals and communities we accompany. Thanks in advance for your support and solidarity!

PBI is a leading NGO working to protect human rights defenders at risk. Each day human rights defenders speak out for the rights of others. Each day they risk their livelihoods, their liberty and, in many cases, their lives. Attacks, abductions, and assassinations are on the increase - over 350 peaceful defenders were murdered for their peaceful human rights work in 2021, and thousands more faced threats, harassment, and wrongful arrest.

No other organization in the world supports threatened human rights defenders in the way PBI does. We stand alongside human rights defenders, we learn from them, and echo their voices. We keep them safe, and we work to ensure their voices are heard.

We provide life-saving support to community leaders and other human rights defenders in some of the most dangerous countries in the world, with field projects in Latin America, Asia and Africa.
