Advisory Board will support Benetech’s efforts to empower human rights activists with scalable software solutions

Benetech’s Human Rights Program is focused on providing solutions to some of the world’s biggest and most complex challenges. An integral part to developing and implementing those solutions—and what has made us successful to date—is working hand-in-hand with a global community of human rights organizations and experts with diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

With this in mind, we are pleased to announce the Benetech Human Rights Advisory Board, consisting of 12 inaugural members from leading organizations such as Amnesty International, Stanford Law School, and Open Society Foundations.  The Advisory Board formally expands the depth and breadth of Benetech’s knowledge on human rights issues ranging from protection of civil liberties to open source investigations.

“The Benetech Human Rights Advisory Board brings together some of the best and brightest from activism, research, journalism, law, technology, and philanthropy in order to leverage their collective expertise,” said Keith Hiatt, vice president of Human Rights at Benetech. “The board will guide our human rights work and will help us take a nuanced, sustainable approach to rapidly evolving global challenges.”

Please join us in welcoming the following individuals to the Benetech family:
