Security and Rights

Our Security and Rights collaborative is comprised of the leading groups and experts in the country working toward the protection of human and civil rights in a post 9/11 world. This includes working to strengthen the rule of law and protect the rights of citizens to be free from discrimination, racial and religious profiling, and unwarranted surveillance and suspicion.

We are proud to work closely with many of the foremost organizations, leaders, and experts addressing a broad range of issues from closing Guantanamo and increasing the legal oversight of drone attacks, to curtailing the over-reach of NSA spying, and opposing discrimination and racial profiling that targets American Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities. 

The Security & Rights Collaborative was launched in 2009 as an initiative of the Proteus Fund in partnership with ReThink Media, and with the support of the Atlantic Philanthropies, the Oak Foundation, the Open Society Foundation, the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art and the Building Bridges Program, the Democracy Fund Voice, and others.
