WOLA: Advocacy for Human Rights in the Americas
Program

South America

WOLA has a long history of working on South America. WOLA’s commitment to analysis and advocacy that promotes human rights, social justice, and democracy was forged in response to the coup d’etat in Chile in the early 70’s and the military dictatorships that prevailed in that era.

Today, WOLA tackles a variety of issues throughout the region. Here you will find analysis of the political landscape in Venezuela, transitional justice issues, and hemispheric relations in general.
