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 involved, or because of the difficulty of finding good translators.
We want to enable the reports published by Russia's human rights groups to reach a wider, international audience by providing first-rate translations into English. The money donated will be used to pay for the translations, which will be provided at no cost to the authors.
The reports in question cover all kinds of human rights issues, including freedom of expression, right of assembly, right of association, the prohibition on torture, liberty and security of person, right to a fair trial, and freedom from discrimination, including on the basis of gender, ethnicity, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.
The reports form the basis for the vital work of awareness-raising and advocacy to combat human rights violations in Russia.
