HRDAG and #GivingTuesday 2017

Help us advance human rights.

Help us hold human rights violators accountable! At HRDAG, we create scientific evidence that helps courts to convict mass human rights abusers. HRDAG is ready with analyses that amplify victims’ stories, withstand cross-examination, and help lead to justice and accountability for perpetrators. We help put mass murderers behind bars. By supporting our work, you can, too.

HRDAG has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

HRDAG Highlights

Court Cases

HRDAG has testified against some of the worst perpetrators of human rights crimes in the world. We provided testimony for the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia for the trial of Slobodan Milošević, served as an expert witness in the trial of Guatemala’s General José Efraín Ríos Montt and in the trial against Chad’s Hissène Habré. Ríos Montt and Habré were found guilty. Help us testify against more human rights violators by donating today.

US Criminal Justice

Over the last year HRDAG has deepened the national conversation around the topics of homicides by police, predictive policing software and the role that bail plays in the criminal justice system. Our publications illuminate the problem of racial bias inherent in predictive policing algorithms, and we are shedding new light on the iniquities associated with bail decisions.

Hidden Graves in Mexico

For more than a decade, Mexican authorities have been discovering hidden, mass graves, or fosas clandestinas, containing hundreds of bodies and bones. Using analysis that models the probability of identifying a hidden grave in each municipio, HRDAG is helping Mexican families put to rest haunting questions about their loved ones. Help us find more answers for families in Mexico; support our work.


For more than five years HRDAG has been working with partners in Syria and the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to create official reports enumerating the casualties. We’ve also supported Amnesty International with a project detailing the horrible conditions and deaths in Syrian prisons. Help us take the next steps with our Syrian partners by supporting our work today.


In Colombia HRDAG has studied the patterns of homicides to gain a better understanding of where, when and how the killings are happening. We are working with the UN Secretariat of the Peace in Colombia to dig deeper and shed more light on the phenomenon so that accountability, truth and justice can be achieved. You can help us achieve these goals by making a donation today.

Our work has been used by truth commissions, international criminal tribunals, and non-governmental human rights organizations. We have worked with partners on projects on five continents.
