Description: The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) announces an open competition for organizations interested in submitting applications for projects that support the rule of law and respect for human rights in Central Asia. The Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor champions American values, including the rule of law and individual rights, which promote strong, stable, prosperous, and sovereign states. We stand for the freedoms of religion, speech, and the press, and the rights of people to assemble peaceably and to petition their government for a redress of grievances. Issues impacting lawyers and journalists working toward accountability and the rule of law in these countries are outlined in the U.S. Department of State’s Human Rights Report (HRR). https://www.state.gov/country-reports-on-human-rights-practices-for-2018/. The objective of this solicitation is to strengthen the sustainability of civil society partners by promoting fundamental freedoms and improving the collective standing of legal advocates, human rights defenders, and journalists at-risk or under persecution for reporting or advocating for human rights in Central Asian countries.
