Who We Are
Headquartered in New York City, the Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI) is comprised of award-winning journalists, researchers and human rights advocates. Our staff collaborates with an extensive team of independent investigators, civil society activists and human rights defenders inside Iran, allowing CHRI to report on and document real-time, on-the-ground human rights conditions in Iran.
Our team includes writers and multimedia professionals, enabling CHRI to disseminate its findings through comprehensive reports, briefing papers, breaking news articles and continuous news updates, press releases, blogs, videos, audio podcasts, and interactive online projects. Members of our team regularly brief journalists and policy makers, and work to expand public awareness of human rights issues through print and broadcast media interviews.
We advocate with governments and major international organizations, and partner with activists around the world to inform the international community of the state of human rights in Iran, advance basic rights and freedoms, and hold Iran accountable to its international obligations.
