Minority Rights Advocates is a humanitarian, benevolent society of friends which seeks justice and equality for the persecuted and the denied. We are a non-profit and non-governmental organization. Our mission is to advocate and provide assistance to the disadvantaged, the under-served, the voiceless and marginalized. Our vision is to alleviate injustice, and improve the human condition to the greatest extent possible.
Our programs are focused in minority communities of the USA, Latin America and the Caribbean. We advocate for human rights and challenge governing authorities to respect them. We travel to the remote countryside, hinterland, and villages to assist communities untouched by national or international aid. MRA goes where others don’t go because MRA cares.
