The Human Rights Documentation Exchange is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the indigent and often unnoticed people applying for asylum. We rely on private foundation grants, individual contributions, and fund-raising to continue our service. We also charge our clients using a sliding-scale to supplement contributions.

  • The Joyce Mertz-Gilmore Foundation

Each year the Human Rights Documentation Exchange presents the Human Rights Defender Award to an outstanding individual dedicated to the preservation of human rights worldwide. This year's Defender was Lee Terán, Director of the Immigration Clinic at St. Mary's School of Law.
