Founded in 2001, the San Francisco Committee is a network of leaders dedicated to advancing human rights in both their communities and around the world. As ambassadors and advocates, members play an active role in a global network of philanthropists, advocates, and community leaders who make up the Human Rights Watch Council.
Members leverage their unique expertise and networks to advance and achieve the organization’s fundraising, outreach, and advocacy goals.
Committee members are invited to briefings by Human Rights Watch leaders, investigators, and advocates throughout the year. These provide insight into breaking news and the world’s most pressing challenges, such as climate change, immigration, and the rise of authoritarianism.
