DRL envisions a program that would enable individual human rights defenders and civil society organizations to continue their work advocating for fundamental freedoms, despite forced relocation due to threats or attacks on them for their work.

DRL promotes democracy, protect human rights and international religious freedom, and advance labor rights globally through both policy and programming.  Projects should aim to have impact that leads to democratic reforms, and should have the potential for sustainability beyond DRL resources.  DRL’s preference is to avoid duplicating past efforts by supporting new and creative approaches.  This does not exclude from consideration projects that improve upon or expand existing successful projects in a new and complementary way.  DRL provides targeted support through programs that take an intersectional approach to addressing barriers created by rising levels of violence, discrimination and criminalization aimed at individuals based on their religion, gender, disability, race, ethnicity, and/or sexual orientation and gender identity.  These programs are demand-driven, locally led, and best practices to prevent, mitigate, and recover from human rights violations.
