Consortium Awarded USAID Justice, Rights, and Security Rapid Response Assistance Activity

OCTOBER 18, 2022

Silver Spring, Maryland – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded the Justice, Rights, and Security Rapid Response Assistance (JURIS) Activity to a consortium of organizations led by Democracy International (DI) in partnership with Humanity & Inclusion.

USAID’s Center for Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance announced the $20 million, five-year award. The activity will support small, rapid activities around the world to address critical, time-sensitive human rights, justice, and security-related concerns and windows of opportunity.

DI’s JURIS coalition will support efforts to monitor and document rights violations and provide technical, emergency, and other assistance to defenders under threat. Humanity & Inclusion will build on its expertise in working alongside people with disabilities and other populations experiencing extreme vulnerabilities to support this critical programming.

“DI is excited to partner with Humanity & Inclusion and work together with the JURIS coalition and USAID to mitigate the global threats on justice, human rights, and security,” said DI President Eric Bjornlund.
