Open Briefing can provide funded holistic security support to rights-based civil society organisations, collectives and defenders working in the global south that cannot otherwise fund this support.
At-risk defenders can now book a free one-hour phone consultation with one of our team. Users can request a consultation to discuss a safety and security, digital security or wellbeing and resilience concern. As well as advice, our consultants can signpost them to resources or refer on to our clinics or intensive support.
Open Briefing is running a series of free monthly online clinics for rights-based defenders, collectives and organisations in the Americas between November 2020 and June 2021.
Open Briefing has today launched the Holistic Security Protocol for Human Rights Defenders. The Defender’s Protocol will help at-risk defenders around the world advance their physical safety, digital security, and wellbeing and resilience. By following the protocol, defenders can enhance their individual and collective security, and reduce the burden of attacks, harassment, and censorship on them and their communities.
