Your Local Impact Guide




Make an impact in your local community.

Many of us have the urge to take action, to do something that promotes the American values we hold dear – inclusiveness, compassion, and humanity. Why not start in your backyard? Choose to stand up to hate, racism, xenophobia, and sexism, as many of our clients have done. Take action! Make your impact LOCAL.


Here’s what you can do.



GIVE HRI’s clients come from all over the world and have faced atrocities such as: imprisonment, forced labor, torture, domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, child abuse and much more. Without your financial support, HRI would be unable to continue our day-to-day operations in providing essential legal and social services to these survivors and their families. GIVE TODAY.


lendLEND With roughly 14,000 hours donated towards legal, translation, fundraising and social services, it’s certain that volunteers are an integral part of Human Rights Initiative. HRI is looking for volunteer attorneys, doctors, psychologists, translators, and mentors.
Lend a hand today!

ENGAGE Approximately 16.3% of Texas’ population immigrated to the U.S. Chances are that you encounter an immigrant on a weekly basis! Put your passion to purpose and bridge the gap. Say hello to someone who doesn’t look like you. Have a conversation with your neighbors about the work of Human Rights Initiative and our clients. Engage your community in whatever way works for you. Lasting change starts at the local level.




Impact starts at home.
