About Us

Lawyers Committee for Human Rights

Since 1978, the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights has worked in the U.S. and abroad to create a secure and humane world by advancing justice, human dignity and respect for the rule of law. We support human rights activists who fight for basic freedoms and peaceful change at the local level; protect refugees in flight from persecution and repression; promote fair economic practices by creating safeguards for workers’ rights; and help build a strong international system of justice and accountability for the worst human rights crimes.

William D. Zabel is Chair of the Board of the Lawyers Committee, Tom Bernstein is the President of the Board, Michael Posner is the Executive Director, Michael McClintock is the Director of Program, and Elisa Massimino is the Director of the Washington, D.C. Office.
