About HRF

Human Rights Forum (HRF) was formed in October 1998 with a strong understanding that violation or denial of rights arises in all situations of structured oppression and inequality and the democratic aspirations arising from all such situations, and resistance to such oppression, whether organized or not, whether collective or isolated, are equally important for the Rights movement: theoretically, practically and organizationally.
HRF is a non-political and non-funded voluntary organization and responds to issues and concerns all over the country and also outside, but for the present its membership and organization are confined to Andhra Pradesh. HRF takes up rights issues and violations through extensive fact-finding investigations, issuing press statements and media releases, circulating leaflets and other forms of literature, organizing demonstrations, dharnas, peaceful agitations, public meetings, participating in campaigns, making policy interventions, filing representation petitions and legal interventions.
