All people deserve the chance to be treated fairly and to be free from exploitation and abuse. We advocate for policies that ensure equal opportunity for employment and housing for people with criminal records, protect victims of labor and sex trafficking, and uphold human rights and human dignity for all.

Our Human Rights & Justice Priorities:

  • All human being are born free and equal in dignity and rights. The mission of Heartland Alliance is to advance the human rights and respond to the human needs of endangered populations – particularly the poor, the isolated, and the displaced – through the provision of comprehensive and respectful services and the promotion of permanent solutions leading to a morejust global society.  Our policy work reflects our commitment to human rights.  Indeed, freedom poverty is a human right. 

  • In 2006, we launched the From Poverty of Opportunity Campaign, a human rights campaign aimed at reducing poverty.  Learn more about the Campaign here.
