Who we are

Not On Our Watch is committed to robust advocacy and research in support of global human rights. Drawing upon figures with powerful voices, we develop projects and campaigns that bring global attention to forgotten international crises. We target mass media and global policy-makers. We encourage governing bodies to take meaningful, immediate action to protect the vulnerable and create consequences for the perpetrators of war crimes and their accomplices. Drawing on our history of providing humanitarian assistance, we now focus on addressing root causes to help bring an end to complex conflicts in the regions of the world not typically prioritized by the international community.


Not On Our Watch is a federally registered 501(c)3 charity.
