Center for Human Rights in Iran · September, 2015

Founded in 2008, the Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI), formerly the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, is a non-partisan, independent human rights non-profit 501(c)3 organization based in New York that works actively in Latin America, the United States, and Europe. CHRI’s team is comprised of trained lawyers, researchers, and journalists with extensive research and advocacy experience in international organizations and publications.

CHRI supports the Iranian people’s struggle for human rights and amplifies their voices on the international stage. On the global stage, CHRI fills the gaps in information and knowledge caused by lack of access to Iran. We have earned a reputation as one of the major organizations providing relevant, verified, and up-to-date information about the human rights situation in Iran. International journalists consult us for background; diplomats heed our briefings. We routinely cooperate with major human rights organizations including Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and the Committee to Protect Journalists.
