Projects should partner with local organizations to improve civilian security and strengthen community resilience with the goal of preventing atrocities in countries vulnerable to extremist and communal violence.

Possible program activities may include: supporting the creation and local management of a communication and/or early warning system to share verified information, including but not limited to reports of violence, securely, quickly, and effectively in order to dispel rumors and activate protection mechanisms; training for community leaders to engage effectively with local security actors and increase community-government collaboration to promote civilian security; and promoting reconciliation and inter-communal dialogues in areas affected by ethnic conflict.

DRL is uniquely placed to promote 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.
