Russia's human rights organizations regularly produce reports about the human rights situation in their country.  Too often, these reports are not translated into English because of the cost, or because of the difficulty of finding good translators.

The goal of our project is to enable reports written by Russia's human rights defenders to reach an international audience by providing first-rate translations into English. The money donated will be used to pay for the translations, which will be provided to the Russian human rights organizations at no cost.

The kinds of reports to be translated cover a wide range of human rights issues, including freedom of expression, right of association, right of assembly, security and liberty of person, freedom from discrimination, and the prohibition on torture. 

The reports to be translated will further the vital work of awareness-raising and advocacy to combat human rights violations in the Russian Federation.
