Organization for Human Right & Democracy (OHRD)

Atlanta, GA

Founded in 2014, the Organization for Human Rights and Democracy (OHRD) (formerly, the Atlanta Public Sector Alliance) engages in multi-issue, grassroots, radical, and intersectional human rights organizing to transform communities and the world using Metro-Atlanta as the model. 

Mission 
“We are guided by the lived experiences, the activism, and the knowledge of Black feminists and women of color. We prioritize working-class people of color and the conditions they experience to build movements and an institution for change. Using education and action, we address deeply rooted matters of gender, disability, economic, racial, and environmental justice driven by political independence and human rights principles. OHRD articulates a new vision for how Metro-Atlanta and the world will realize, protect, and expand our human rights. We empower our members to become leaders armed with political analysis and a personal/political approach to building power for comprehensive and holistic liberation.”
