Support Activists in Ukraine

The citizens of Ukraine are fighting a courageous battle for their rights, standing up to armed riot police and a corrupt regime. Since the government began launching strikes on February 18, dozens have been killed on both sides. Among the injured are at least 40 journalists, one of whom was killed by government-sponsored thugs hired to attack and intimidate journalists and protesters.

Freedom House is helping journalists and activists in the midst of the protests in Kiev and other cities in Ukraine, as well as those who have had to seek protection elsewhere. We facilitate visas and life-saving medical care for activists forced to flee and provide protective goggles, helmets, and vests for journalists.

More support, including yours, is urgently needed to ensure that Ukrainian citizens struggling for their freedom are protected and supported. Your donation to Freedom House will allow us to provide emergency help to activists and journalists in Ukraine who are risking their lives to defend their rights in the face of targeted violence against them. Please give today.
